Knowing the havoc caused by the super typhoon Yolanda last year, the Filipino Australian Association started to collect donations from their fellow Filipinos and Australian friends who also wanted to help affected citizens. Their given donation will be used for Sagip Kapamilya’s Yolanda rehabilitation projects.
