Through Councilor Allan T. Panaligan of District 2, Pasay City, the Philippine Nurses Association of South Florida, Inc., (PNASF) reached out to Sagip Kapamilya of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation to help Yolanda victims.

 “I was asked by my sister-in-law, Liezl Dagum, who is the President of PNASF, to hand carry the checks to be donated to Sagip Kapamilya,” shares Panaligan.

PNASF, together with other groups, conducted a fund-raising activity for the Yolanda victims. The fund-raising activity was done by selling t-shirts which were used by the participants in a walkathon event that they organized.

“Almost all of them are TFC (The Filipino Channel) subscribers. Through that, they see that ABS-CBN is doing a lot of charity works for the Yolanda victims and it encouraged them to give the donation to Sagip Kapamilya.”

 
The other organizations that made the fund raising activity possible were the Philippine Charities Foundation, University of Santo Tomas Nursing Association of Florida, the International Nurses Association of America, the Filipino American Association of Florida, and the Philippine Basketball Association of South Florida Inc.
