Communities across the province continue to raise funds towards relief efforts for the Philippines.

The Filipino community is strong in Labrador City, with people coming to the area to find work and support family back in their home country.

Menihek High School hosted a morning assembly on Friday to raise money to support relief efforts, and raised nearly $3,000.

The Iron Ore Company of Canada donated $7,500 to the Canadian Red Cross, and the Town of Labrador City also made a $1,000 donation, bringing total funds to over $10,000.

Jessa Briones lost contact with her family when Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines.

"I was just worried about my father because he's sick — and my other relatives there," Briones said.

But she said she's since heard from her family, who assured her they were safe and the damages were minimal.

Others in her home country weren't so lucky.

Approximately 5,000 people have been confirmed dead, with still more than 1,000 missing — and a million left homeless.

However, Herly Anne Enriquez said people in her country are not without hope.

"We have other ways to help them. Some Filipino's here do fundraisers, so that's the only thing we can do for now since we're not in our country," Enriquez said.

People in western Labrador continue to hold events to help support victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

The Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church is hosting a gospel concert in Labrador City on Sunday, with all proceeds being sent to the Philippines.
