CYCLING FOR THE EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE FUND TO DEPENDENTS OF TYPHOON OMPONG VICTIMS IN THE CORDILLERAS IN THE PHILIPPINES

In the middle of September this year, super typhoon Ompong hit northern Philippines with the Cordilleras bearing the brunt of its fury causing, on its path, severe destruction to life and property with at least 70 fatalities. Among other things, this disaster has caused the disruption and/or cessation to the schooling of the children of affected families.

The Igorot Global Organization (IGO) is raising funds to provide financial assistance to those affected college, or yet to enter college, students in order for them to finish their education to ensure a better future for their families.

IGO will kick-start the fund-raising initiative through a CYCLING FOR VICTIMS OF TYPHOON OMPONG. On 7 October 2018 Raleigh Agdaca, riding under the banner of MABIKA-Australia Inc, will cycle in the 160 Km Around the Bay in Melbourne, Australia. On 18 November 2018, Dukaw Cadiogan and Chester Feliciano, riding under the banner of Igorot-UK, will cycle in the 72 mile Essex Season Ender in London, UK.

We appeal for your generosity to support this initiative. Your donations to this cause are greatly appreciated. The cycling fund raising will end on 30 November 2018.

An online fund-raising page is currently being set-up as an alternative means to make your donations and we will update you accordingly when this becomes operational. In the meantime, donations can be made by direct credit or cash/cheque deposits through the following:
