Nevada Reaches Out To The Philippines

(Las Vegas, NV) – Nevada District 3 has highest Filipino population in the country. Congressman Joe Heck says he immediately wrote a letter to the the Director of the United States International Assistance Program and told him we need to move resources to the Philippines, quick.

He says we have always had a long history of cooperation with the Philippine nation. Heck also says we can help by donating to the International Red Cross.

Nevada’s Filipino community is already working on fundraisers and donation drives. Local Filipino, Rozita Lee, says everyone is trying to help. They had a meeting Monday night to discuss the possibility of a telethon to raise funds.

Many locals in Las Vegas still cannot get a hold of family in the Philippines. Communication lines are down.
