PWU Volunteers Shine In Typhoon Lawin’s Wake

The PWU Community responded to the call for help to victims of Super Typhoon Lawin by volunteering for joint relief work through the Sagip Kapamilya program of the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation.

Typhoon Lawin caused devastating effects on properties, livelihood and lives of Filipinos in parts of Northern Luzon. On October 20-22, volunteers from PWU joined the relief packing operations of Sagip Kapamilya in Quezon City. Representatives from UNICORP, Student Council, PSSW, ABCA and JASMS represented the PWU community through direct relief assistance efforts.

The PWU volunteers, who could have taken the day off since their schools were closed, opted instead to render meaningful service to disaster victims by working in the relief packing warehouse of Sagip Pamilya. Prof. Evelyn Valencia, chairperson of the Philippine School of Social Work at PWU thanked the volunteers and said, “this opportunity to help other people through volunteerism represents the PWU core value of community participation at its best.”
