Admin’s note: below is a follow-up report on [FAN PROJECT] 131109 JYJ REACH: Earthquake & Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) Charity Project.
The Philippines was recently struck by a magnitude 7.2 Earthquake that greatly affected the provinces of Bohol and Cebu. Less than a month thereafter, another disaster was experienced like no other when typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) hit Central Philippines killing thousands of people, injuring thousands more, destroying homes and damaging major infrastructures. The destruction after the storm was horribly massive and survivors clamor for basic needs like food, water and shelter. In the midst of this great loss and sadness, the desire to help is equally overwhelming. People from all walks of life, nationality and status are donating what they have and giving what they can.
Like JYJ’s compassion towards those in need and like everyone who wants to make a little difference in this trying times, we, the JYJ Lovers in the Philippines (@JYJ_PH) in the name of JYJ – Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu, launched another Charity Project under our Charity Flag JYJ REACH. As you may recall, last August 2012, when the Philippines was devastated by the eight day “Habagat” or southwest monsoon, JYJ_PH initiated a Charity Project called “JYJ REACH” to reach out to the victims by donating food and medicine. The group knocked on the good hearts of its JYJ Family for assistance and help. The project was successfully concluded and implemented in cooperation with the Philippine Red Cross, ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya and World Vision. (Read more HERE)

As of November 16, 2013, the team was able to gather more than 50,000.00 (≈ USD 1,143.50) PHP worth of cash donations. The project as planned were implemented in two phases. Read More →
