The World Boxing Organization (WBO) through its president Francisco 'Paco' Valcarcel will donate $10,000 towards relief efforts for victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) especially the children in the affected areas.
With this gesture, the WBO becomes the first boxing organization to take up the initiative for the Filipino typhoon victims.
"The WBO is deeply concerned for the people of the Philippines affected by the Typhoon Haiyan. We are joining this major relief effort by making a donation in the amount of $10,000-particularly to help children with emergency food and water. We hope others will join too and help alleviate some of the suffering," the WBO stated.
The WBO is one of the major sanctioning bodies with strong relations to Philippine boxing.
"This is a time to give back to the community. This is when we should do our share," stressed WBO Asia Pacific Chairman Leon Panoncillo in his message.
