AAI Interns Coordinate Emergency Relief

Developing future leaders is a key mission of Asia America Initiative. In September 2009, the northern Philippines, especially the capitol of Manila, was devastated with flood waters from Typhoon Ondoy. Entire neighborhoods were submerged and close to one million people were made homeless. Asia America Initiative, with the assistance from donor partners in the United States contributed close to 7 million dollars worth of flood relief, including water purification, medicines and nutritional supplements. Humanitarian relief in the disaster area was coordinated by AAI Philippines Director, Ms. Rohaniza Sumndad, in partnership with Filipino Government agencies, the Filipino Army and multiple NGOs. In Washington, AAI President Albert Santoli and a staff of international college interns organized the relief shipments.
