Typhoon Ondoy Relief Operations at AIM



The video you see above is just one of the shocking scenes that happened in Manila as Typhoon Ondoy (internationally known as Typhoon Ketsana) slammed the city.

Thankfully, the Asian Institute of Management was spared from much flooding-- despite the water reached approximately 50cm in Paseo De Roxas Avenue, the street in front of the campus. But for a brief moment, the Zen Garden became a pond.

Now that the storm has passed, relief operations are now underway in the city. The Philanthropic Activities Society (PACTS) of AIM are participating in the relief operations for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy. Spearheaded by MBA Cohort 3 student Laurice Alaan, the PACTS have volunteered manpower to the efforts and have been collecting relief goods and donations.

AIM alumni and students who would like to support the initiatives of PACTS, please contact Laurice at alaan.mba2009_b3 (at) student.aim.edu .

This is a worthy cause and I join the PACTS in encouraging the AIM community to do our little part in the relief efforts.
