A glimmer of sunlight to come from the recent devastation in the Philippines left in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda is how quickly the international community has mobilized to help our fellow brothers and sisters in harm’s way. As the Philippines has played host to the IJSBA International Competitions over the years, Jet Sport Association Philippines President Harley David and brother Jambee have scrambled the PWC family to circle the wagons and bring some much needed aid.
One of the hardest hit areas hit by the typhoon was also one of the most visited by international racers, Tacloban City. As the brothers David work to arrange a method to donations to be received, the IJSBA is already in motion. If you’d like to donate, please read the letter below and contact either Paul DelRosario and BJ Ang.
IJSBA is sad to report that the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda, in the Philippines, has had a direct effect on one of our host cities. Tacloban City has been a regular and generous host for IJSBA International Competitions which have been well attended by riders from UAE, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, and other nations from around the world. Tacloban City was one of the areas most hardest hit from the typhoon.
Jet Sport Association Philippines President, Harley David, along with his brother Jambee David, have been leaders in arranging donations to help those in need. IJSBA will soon have more information on how the International PWC Community can help. In the meantime, persons wanting to get involved immediately may contact competitors Paul DelRosario and BJ Ang by the following methods:
