The UP Hamili Brotherhood and the UP Hamilia Sisterhood handed over P30,000.00 to Chancellor Clement Camposano on November 18, 2020. The money is being donated in support of the UPV Disaster Response Operation.

The amount is part of the “Help for Catanduanes and Cagayan Fund Drive” of the two organizations launched on Sunday to respond to the communities’ pressing needs in the Cagayan Valley Catanduanes, which were severely ravaged by the recent typhoons Ulysses and Rolly.

These past two weeks have been filled with news and reports of the catastrophic damage that has been caused by STY Rolly and TY Ulysses. In line with this, and the recent flooding triggered by the typhoons, UP Visayas met with the Office of the City mayor yesterday, November 16, 2020, to discuss a meta-analysis of extreme flooding studies in the Philippines that was conducted to extract lessons that could inform flood preparedness of Iloilo City.
