Multinational Manila’s Jan. 7th, 2014 club meeting was attended by a municipal councilor from the City of Alfonso who is also a visiting Rotarian from Ermita. She reported that the City of Alfonso had collected and also saved cash donations and toys for direct distribution to Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) survivors. However, city officials were reluctant to proceed because of safety and security concerns. Pres. Dr. Klaus was asked and promised to accompany representatives from the City of Alfonso and DSWD for such a trip at his own expense and provide security. He was familiar with the area, having visited it during his club-supported first Typhoon victim support trip Dec. 6-14, 2013. Club members assisted immediately with drawing up an itinerary and making travel arrangements.
