Accepting donations and assistance in relief operations for Yolanda victims

EnGendeRights Team was only able to use a small van on our first wave of relief operations in Dagami as we have limited funds to cover costs of travel, hence, our continued call for support.

The van rental may reach from PhP20,000 depending on the length of their travel. The gas costs about more than PhP10,000. Ferry is about PhP3,000.

Costing for one truck and accompanying van trip to Barrio Banayon, Dagami and nearby barangays are as follow:

 Transportation
 Cost (in Php)
 Cost (in USD)
 Ten-wheeler wing-van Truck
 - inclusive of gas, driver, driver's assistant, ferry/RORO
 70,000.00 1,607.00
 Convoy van
 - to cover rental for 4 days worth
 20,000.00 459.00
 Ferry cost for convoy van
 3,000.00 68.00
 Gasoline expense for van (Manila to Dagami and back)
 10,000.00 299.00
 Food and expenses for driver and accompanying personnel
 3,500.00 69.00
 TOTAL 106,500.002,445.00
Note: This shows the magnitude of our problem here in the Philippines in just one interior area. There are other interior areas in other affected provinces. Also, islets such as Mambacayao Diot, Lipayran of Bantayan Island in Cebu and other affected islets/islands that can only be reached by boat or helicopters.
