Asian football donates $100,000 for victims of Typhoon Pablo

By MST Sports | Feb. 11, 2013 at 12:01am
THE Philippine Football Federation welcomed HRH Prince Abdullah Ibni Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah (AFF Council and  Finance and Marketing Committee member, AFC Vice President and Executive Committee member and VP of Football Association of Malaysia) to the Philippines last Feb. 1 for the ceremonial turnover of a $100,000 donation by the AFF Council to PFF during their recently concluded AFF Council Meeting in Thailand.  The donation is intended for the victims of Typhoon Pablo.

ASEAN Football Federation is a football sub-confederation in Asia, whose members are Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Timor-Leste, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos.

This charitable gesture exhibits the brotherhood and solidarity among these member associations especially during times of crisis.  Football Federation Australia also participated in this initiative.

Mariano Araneta Jr., PFF president , said that PFF is considering using this fund to put up school buildings in some communities devastated by Typhoon Pablo. He added that small football fields can be set up within these areas for children to learn and enjoy the sport.

Typhoon Pablo (international name “Bopha”) swept across eastern Mindanao last Dec. 4, with monster winds gusting up to 200 kilometers per hour, causing flashfloods and landslides, flattening communities and banana plantations and prompting President Benigno Aquino III to declare a national state of calamity.

Last year, PFF also organized charity matches for the victims of Typhoon Sendong.

Proceeds from the matches were donated to the Philippine Red Cross and ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya.
