Another 40-foot container is nearly full of relief goods and is ready to be shipped out to the Super Typhoon Yutu-ravaged CNMI.
tions that were loaded into the container include bottled water, diapers, machetes, chainsaws, butane stoves and fuel, medical supplies, food, wash basins, buckets, soaps, toothbrushes, razors, shampoos, feminine products,
flashlights, batteries, ropes, tarps, coolers, sleeping bags, and other essentials.

The Ayuda Foundation continues to solicit donations from individuals and companies that want to help out the victims of Super Typhoon Yutu in the CNMI. 

Items that are especially needed in the CNMI at this time are bottled drinking water, canned goods, instant soup, tarps, ropes, mosquito coils, nets, mosquito repellants, first aid kits, flashlights, batteries, tools, nails,
machetes, butane stoves, butane cartridges, adult and children diapers, paper towels, baby wipes, paper plates, cleaning supplies, cots, sleeping bags, chainsaws, air mattresses, sheets, bedding, pillow cases, pillows, and other
items needed for living under rough conditions.

Clothing donations are being discouraged at this time as they take up valuable storage space that can be better utilized for more essential items.

In-kind donations can be dropped off at the Ayuda Foundation’s main CNMI typhoon donation collection and aggregation center located at the Triple J facility in Upper Tumon (former Foremost).

For more information, call the Ayuda Foundation at (671) 473-3003 or check out the Foundation’s Facebook page. (PR)
