President of Parliament of Sint Maarten Hon. Gracita Arrindel on November 20 met with representatives of Filipino Community of St. Maarten Foundation led by its President Ferdinand Odoño, and presented a personal check towards the relief effort to help Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) victims.

“I would like to express my condolences on behalf of the people, my colleague Members of Parliament and the House of Parliament for the devastating loss in the Philippines. The people of Sint Maarten can relate to the devastation after going through the experience with Hurricane Luis in 1995. Sint Maarten also received an outpouring at that time and since then it has changed all of our lives,” President Arrindell told the foundation’s delegation.

The foundation decided to channel raised funds as well as the donation of Hon. Arrindel to their trusted foundations including Dalaw Kalinga Foundation to continue its efforts in the recovery of typhoon-stricken communities.

Dalaw Kalinga Foundation is grateful for the trust given by Mr. Ferdinand Odoño and the Filipino Community of St. Maarten Foundation, and Hon. Gracita Arrindel and the people of Sint Maarten.
