Truth x Lakay Gaming, the official Facebook Gaming page of ONE Championship Filipino mixed martial arts heroes and World Champions Brandon “The Truth” Vera, Joshua “The Passion” Pacio, Eduard “Landslide” Folayang and Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon, has raised more than P50,000 for the victims of Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.
Launched on 2 December, ONE Championship and ONE Esports, who manages the page, partnered with Save the Children Philippines to help victims of the typhoons that ravaged parts of the country with a goal of raising at least P50,000. Actual results via donate.savethechildren.net showed the campaign shattered its target by P5,541.
ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua “The Passion” Pacio relished the opportunity given to them and expressed their willingness to undertake the task.
“I think this is an amazing opportunity to give back to the people and the fans who have supported our careers,” he said.
“We are glad to be able to help where we can, even in our own small way. I’m sure the funds we’ve raised here will be of great use, and we’re looking forward to participating in more of these campaigns in the future. It’s important that we give each other a helping hand, especially in these difficult times. We’re willing to do what we can do for our fellow Filipinos.”
The Philippines, which lies in the Pacific Ring of Fire, is subject to numerous natural disasters, including powerful typhoons, multiple times every year.
At least a 100 individuals were lost during the the combined onslaught of Typhoon Rolly on 1 November and Ulysses on 11 November, which roughly crossed the same track as its predecessor.
Rolly and Ulysses both left trails of destruction and affected some 2.3 million people across eight regions, displaced over 70,000 individuals, and severely damaged property and infrastructure due to heavy rains that includes flooding due to overspill of the Magat Dam.
