Sagip Kapamilya, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation’s disaster risk reduction and management arm, will never be fully operational without the help of different volunteers who generously give their time and effort to whether repack or distribute relief goods during calamities.

To make their vacation worthwhile, the family of Eric and Sandralli Raymond who are now based in Fresno, California, signed up to be Sagip Kapamilya volunteers. For two days, the family repacked relief goods for Sagip’s emergency relief operations.

Sandralli says, “We are TFC (The Filipino Channel) subscribers so each time there is a calamity here in the Philippines, we see it on the television. During the Yolanda typhoon, we saw the victims and we actually campaigned where we were to all the catholic schools to donate and send whatever they can, money or clothes to the Philippines. We feel very satisfied and honored to be able to help in our own little way.”

 
Indeed, the spirit of volunteerism among Filipinos inside or outside the Philippines is alive. To know more on how to be a volunteer of Sagip Kapamilya, visit www.sagipkapamilya.com.
