Project Yakap: Hugs, not Hogs

See Project Yakap: Hugs, not Hogs Facebook page.

#ScrapPork Network, a group of citizen advocates, together with Lifeline Foundation Support Team, Inc., are launching Project Yakap: an initiative wherein Filipinos in non-affected areas open their homes in Manila, Cebu and other locations to foster (feed and shelter and basically be a family to) the evacuees from the areas affected by Super Typhoon Yolanda and to raise money to support the households participating in this initiative.

They will welcome whole families, singles, children, siblings, the elderly—whoever needs a family, and giving them temporary housing for specific periods of time.
