Lennon widow makes ¥5-million 'Ondoy' donation
The Philippine Star
MANILA, Philippines - Yoko Ono, widow of the late John Lennon
of the Beatles and herself an established artist, has donated 5 million yen (P2.5 million) to children affected by storm “Ondoy” which hit the country in September last year.
In a report to the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Philippine embassy in Tokyo said Ono visited the embassy upon learning of the severe and continuing suffering of Ondoy victims.
“As a mother herself, Ms. Ono feels deep sympathy and love for suffering children,” the embassy said.
It said Ono had pledged the donation before Christmas.
