A Filipino non-government organization in the United Arab Emirates held a fundraising activity at the Philippine consulate in Dubai for the victims of Typhoon Ruby, a report from GMA’s “News TV Live” program said Saturday.
According to the report, Sangguniang Masang Pilipino launched the event named “Brunch for a Cause” which was attended by at least 200 people. The event featured Filipino artists and bands who performed for the crowd.
The funds raised will be used to buy food and other necessities for typhoon victims in the Samar province and other areas.
On December 6, Ruby made landfall in Dolores, Eastern Samar and barreled through the province leaving at least 23 dead and countless homes destroyed.
