SOS for our Iloilo Media

From Tonette:

Dear All!

We just realized that our media friends, partners and colleagues in the Province of Iloilo were also hit hard as the public that they were covering! Diosa Labiste, who was out on assignment, got hourly updates from her family: the whole ground floor of their residence went waist-deep in floodwater; her books now swimming, all unsalvageable, and worse, the puppy drowned...
Arnold, a photojournalist, was not able to save anything, except his cameras.
Many lost their homes, other possessions...
And all these, while they went ahead doing their jobs, giving voice to the people, even responding first to the call of the disaster.
We are appealing to all-- let us look after our colleagues who now need our help.
Any donation, be it in cash or in kind, will go a long way. Please send your donations to the PNA Office at Radyo ng Bayan in Iloilo City c/o Ms. Lucy Montealto, or
to Ms. Diosa Labiste, c/o the Center for Community Journalism and Development,
4/F, FSS Building, No. 89 Scout Castor St., Quezon City. Contact Nos. are the
following: 02-376-5550; 0917-8137699
