Zamboanga City crisis: How to help

Likhaan is sending a batch of relief goods to Zamboanga City on Monday, 16 September 2013. If you’d like to give donations to those displaced by the current troubles in Zamboanga, you may deposit the cash in the Likhaan bank account:

ACCOUNT NAME: Likhaan Center for Women’s Health
1) BDO Savings Account No. 3930114156 (Scout Albano Branch)*
2) BPI Savings Account No. 003053 4873 77 (West Triangle Branch)

* Deposits made today in BDO may be included in the first batch of relief goods headed to Zamboanga on Monday, as as help is urgently needed, it would be great if you could try to send your donation by end of banking hours today. There are BDO branches open on weekends.

If you have donations in kind, they may be included in the succeeding batches of relief goods. What is urgently needed now is water, used clothes, blankets, mats, slippers, medicines and medical supplies. Send your donations to

Likhaan Office (Mondays-Fridays, 9am -6 pm)
88 Times Street, West Triangle Homes
Quezon City.
