The team also followed precautions against COVID-19, such as wearing a face mask and face shield, as they gave the relief goods. While they worked to assist those severely affected by the recent typhoon, Curtis-Smith could not help but lament the wreck it left in its wake.

“We hope that what small help we can give will be able to assist you the next couple of days… and we pray for those who are still trying to manage with [what’s] left of their homes,” she said.

Prior to the distribution, the Aktor members and volunteers repacked the relief goods in the Taumbayan bar in Kamuning, Quezon City. Among the team were Sunshine Dizon, Paolo Paraiso, Dingdong Dantes, Agot Isidro, Jerom Canlas and Iana Bernardez, as seen in Locsin’s post.

The group began calling for donations yesterday and have teamed up with the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, Caritas Philippines, Dantes’s YesPinoy Foundation and the Andrew’s Fund PH for the effort.

Those interested in giving in-kind donations such as face masks, clean water, medicine, blankets, clothes and canned food should drop them off at the Taumbayan bar.

Typhoon Ulysses battered parts of Luzon from Wednesday night until Thursday morning. The damage it caused has been compared to that of 2009’s Typhoon Ondoy, when Marikina was also one of the cities hardest hit by the calamity. NVG
