STP Relief Drive Campaign

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

People’s CORE is launching the Sagip Tuluy-Tuloy Tulong Pilipinas (STP) Relief Drive (English Translation: Continuous Help to the Philippines), an ongoing campaign to provide support for rehabilitation in areas currently affected by Haiyan/Yolanda and the areas throughout the Philippines that continue to be affected by calamities and disasters.

Since 2004, it has coordinated relief drives with community-based organizations and small businesses nationwide to establish direct linkages with reputable non-governmental organizations based in the Philippines that reach the hardest hit populations. People’s CORE and its current community partners are looking to expand its community working group. The Sagip Tuluy-Tuloy Pilipinas campaign is partnering with UNICEF to provide much needed relief in the devastated areas in the Visayas.
