Assistance to China earthquake victims

Sen. Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC), said they would provide the emergency personnel for the Philippine team to China.

At the same time, Gordon filed a resolution at the Senate, expressing sympathy to China following the earthquake.

“We can only hope that our offer of assistance, however meager, may help to ease the suffering and pain of your people. We truly believe in the universal brotherhood of men, the need to respond to the needs of others in distress is truly imperative,” Gordon said in his letter to Chinese Ambassador to Manila Song Tao.

“Recognizing that China is a big nation with a wealth of resources, we nevertheless extend our hand of friendship to you by offering our humble assistance in any way possible,” Gordon said.
