Gawad Kalinga Canada Typhoon Haiyan Fundraising Update


Markham Federation of Filipino Canadians and the Alex Chiu Golf Tournament donated $70,000, that helped built the Markham GK Village which you will see in this video. "We opted to go for a Markham Village as a tangible and lasting symbol of the generosity of the people of Markham, beginning with our Mayor Frank Scarpitti, and our City Council, and the countless friends and supporters of our Filipino community", said Councillor Alex Chiu.

"It's our way of helping the victims of typhoon Haiyan in that part of the homeland to pick up their lives again, a legacy I hope that will connect Markham to Palo, Leyte for generations to come", he added. 

Thanks to all the donors.
