AACSB Extends its Thoughts and Prayers to the Philippines
The thoughts and prayers of the entire AACSB community, and its more than 1,350 member schools from around the world, are with the great people of the Philippines. We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life that has occurred, and extend our most heartfelt condolences to all that have experienced such devastating hardships. AACSB honors the strength and resiliency of the Filipino spirit, and encourages its membership to join in the universal relief efforts and global support. To learn more how you can directly help disaster victims, please visit the American Red Cross website or a global list of relief agencies that are currently mobilizing services across the region.
In quiet times, we could not help but ask why natural calamities come after the other, and why the Philippines is solely affected by these serious events. However, we also know that they happen for a reason. It is just so wonderful to know that many countries all over the globe are helping us. Back here in Manila, Philippines and in other places in Luzon, we unify ourselves by donating the basic needs that our fellow Filipinos clamor for. Many of us would forego Christmas parties, so we can donate whatever allotment we have for the celebration. What a relief to know that everyone has a caring heart to help reduce the burden that Filipinos are now experiencing. My sincerest gratitude to AACSB in extending a helping hand to us all the time.
