Text books for flood victims

Students who reside in areas badly stricken by flood in Region 3 are in dire need of textbooks. Their books were submerged in floodwater when two typhoons recently hit several towns and provinces in the region. Mud and floodwater rendered those books useless. A librarian who was interviewed while doing a general cleaning was emotional when asked about the destruction brought about by the flood to their school particularly the library. According to her most of the books found in their library are donated and it pains her to see those well-loved books are just part of rubbish now. If they could request anything useful for the school that would be books for their students. I heard from the news that the school doesn’t have internet access yet, so maybe some kind-hearted souls can provide television set or samsung lcd televisions for the affected school so that students can at least have access to educational cd and dvd for the classroom.
