GMA star Marian Rivera has raised more than a hundred thousand pesos (100,000) to help the survivors of super typhoon Yoalanda in Bantayan Island, Cebu. She auctioned off some of her clothes where the proceeds will benefit around 300 fishermen which are beneficiaries of the GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc.
The charity auction was the culmating activity for the Kapuso Adopt-a-Bangka Project which aims to extends help to affected communities in Northern Cebu. It was held in Lewis Grand Hotel in Clark, Pampanga.
In her instagram account, Marian posted:
"Masaya ako't nakapagbigay tulong na naman tayo sa pamamagitan ng Kapuso Adopt-A-Bangka Project. Mahigit 400 daan na pamilya sa Bantayan Island ng Northern Cebu na ang ating natulungan. Di po natin mararating ang ating pinapangarap na ito kung wala ang ating mga partners na walang sawang nagbigay suporta sa atin. Sa araw po na ito ay opisyal na naming tinatapos ang ikalawa at huling yugto ng ating proyekto. Pagbibigyang tuon na ng aming partner, "Back-to-Sea" ng Bantayan Island ang pag papaigting ng kaalaman ng ating mga beneficiaries upang mas mapalakas pa nila ang kanilang kumunidad at livelihood. Muli, maraming salamat!"
More than 10 Million pesos has been raised for the Bantayan Island beneficiaries since Marian became the campaign's ambassadress shortly after the typhoon devastated the Visayas in November last year.

Bantayan, Madridejos, San Remigio and nine (9) other Local Government Units (LGUs) of Cebu signed an agreement with The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) for the repair and construction of 218 classrooms that would benefit almost 10,000 students.
The Php144-Million School Rehabilitaion Project was signed by the mayors and/or representatives of the towns of Alcoy, Aloguinsan, Asturias, Bantayan, Barili, Borbon, Carcar, Naga, Madridejos, Samboan, San Remigio and Sibonga as a continuing commitment to provide the school children with a safer and more conducive learning environment.
Aside from building classrooms, RAFI would also assist the LGUs and the Department of Education in school governance.
“The challenge is not on fixing the school buildings anymore. What we need is to prepare the students so that they can compete,” said RAFI President Roberto Aboitiz, adding that there is also a need to build the character, competence, and citizenship of the students.
As stipulated in the agreement, the 12 LGUs were expected to provide funds for manpower requirements as counterpart for the rehabilitation of their schools, among other obligations. The LGUs have also committed to assume full responsibility of the actual implementation and execution of the project.
Twelve northern Cebu towns were given 168 million pesos to fix government buildings, build emergency shelter and develop resettlement areas for Yolanda survivors. The financial assistance came from three government agencies: Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), National Housing Authority (NHA), and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
This represents only the first tranche, said a recent progress report of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO).
The assistance is not part of the P12.2-billion rehabilitation and recovery plan for Cebu Province that President Benigno Aquino III signed last July, said Capitol consultant for rehabilitation and recovery Carmel Ulanday.
Yolanda ended more than 6,200 lives and injured about 28,000 people in the Visayas last Nov. 8, 2013, said a National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council report.
The typhoon also destroyed or damaged almost P40 billion worth of infrastructure, crops and agricultural facilities.
DILG’s first tranche of assistance was released last May 2. It was intended for the repair of municipal buildings, public markets and civic centers.
Ulanday said the second tranche will be for the repair of barangay halls.
Earlier, Regional Director Ananias Villacorta said the financial assistance distributed to northern local governments formed part of the Recovery Assistance for Yolanda (RAY) fund of DILG.
For its part, DSWD has given emergency shelter assistance to Madridejos (P66.4 million), Sogod (18.1 million) and Tabuelan (P9 million).
