Dear members of the Ateneo de Manila University community and friends,



The University (through its Disaster Response and Management [DReaM] Team)
endorses the call of its fellow Jesuit university, Ateneo de Naga (AdNU,
through its Center for Community Development), for *financial support for
AdNU’s relief/response operations for families affected by the seismic
situation at the vicinity of Mount Mayon in Albay province*.



Even as no explosive eruption has yet taken place, a "soft eruption" has
started with short and stubby lava segments flowing out of the volcano's
crater. Moreover, disaster risk mitigation efforts were undertaken sometime
back, causing the preemptive evacuation of some 12,857 families (57,567
persons) to 48 evacuation centers as of October 7. 2014 (per Oct. 7, 2014
Report of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council).
Alert Level 3 issued by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and
Seismology is still in effect for the volcano and its environs, with
speculation that this may be raised to level 4 soon and which may cause
more evacuees to transfer out of harm's way.



AdNU indicates that donations of funds will be used to meet logistical and
financial requirements for organizing and carrying out the following:

a. Training of a stress management and counseling group,

b. Preparation/distribution of relief goods/materials, and

c. Deployment and delivery of such relief goods.



AdNU particularly looks upon the competence of the Ateneo de Manila’s own
Psychology Department for providing key training of Bicol-based stress
management and counseling volunteers. Your contributions would therefore
help realize and extend this important service of a specific segment of our
own University, apart from providing other forms of response through AdNU.



Listed below are details on the various means for *donating funds directly
to AdNU*.



Thank you for your continued concern for and solidarity with our fellowmen
and women in need, as reached by the network of Jesuit institutions in the
Philippines.



Ateneo de Manila DReaM Team
