MANILA, Philippines --- The Philippine House of Representatives will award a congressional citation to fashion designer Yoko Ono, widow of rock legend John Lennon, for her generous donation to the victims of typhoon “Pablo” in Mindanao.
This developed as financial assistance and material donations continued to flow for the Mindanao victims who lost relatives and have been rendered homeless when typhoon Pablo unleashed huge amounts of rains that flooded many parts of Davao region.
Ono, Japanese wife of Beatles legend John Lennon, sent $10,000 or P406,250 to help fund relief and rehabilitation efforts for the thousands of Mindanao families displaced by the typhoon.
This is a genuine humanitarian gesture on Yoko's part. I'm happy to see her honored by the Philippine government.
