Next BPO Solutions Reaches Out To Typhoon Pablo Victims

On December 3, 2012, a Category 5 super typhoon with the designated name of Pablo (International Code Name: Bopha), ripped through the island of Mindanao where it destroyed houses, disrupted communication towers, caused power outages, flooding and land devastation, leaving thousands homeless with over 1,000 fatalities.

In the midst of its destruction, it left an estimated value of 7.116 billion pesos worth of damages; 3.5 billion pesos in infrastructure, 3.4 billion in agriculture, and 18.4 billion pesos in private properties. Among the reported damages are the livelihoods of most of the residents living in the affected areas. A total estimate of 484,554 families are affected by the typhoon and in need of help.

And because many of the resident’s livelihood have either been damaged or destroyed, they now depend mostly on the relief goods to sustain their everyday needs. The big question is, will the help being given by the government alone be enough to sustain the everyday needs of all the affected families?

Clearly, it is not enough, which is why last December 15, 2012, Next BPO Solutions, Inc. organized a relief caravan together with its staff and clients. It is a simple way of giving aid to all those affected families in these difficult times and perhaps give them hope that there are those who care for them.

Next BPO Solutions, Inc. was able to gather all the basic necessities and supplies needed by the affected families. These supplies were distributed equally to over a hundred-twenty families targeted by the said relief caravan in Barangays Poblacion and Pasian, Monkayo, Compostela Valley. The devastation that typhoon Pablo left can be seen through the faces of the men, women and children lining up as they wait for their turn.

As of December 17, 2012, the company is still pooling in some donations from its other known contacts to organize another relief caravan with the goal of helping more families in the most affected and hard to reach areas in Compostela Valley.

For this holiday season, we should put into our hearts to help our fellow Filipinos cope up with this traumatic experience.

In accordance with the observation of the spirit of giving and Christmas, Next BPO Solutions employees have cancelled their Christmas Party and instead of having an exchanging of gifts, donated a portion of their money for the relief operation.
