IBSC Leads Donation Drive for Project Cagayan
With the recent typhoon that affected our fellow Filipinos, Chiang Kai Shek College’s IB MYP Student Council, led by its president, Tonichi Yasay and vice-president, Elle Sy, spearheaded a donation drive dubbed as “Project Cagayan”. The IBSC coordinated with the non-profit organization, “CFF” to distribute their relief efforts to the beneficiaries in the affected areas. The project not only centered around helping those affected by the typhoon, but also to those who were severely injured while helping others during this situation.
