Dear Friends of WITLA and the International Trade Community in Southern California, Let’s help our friends in the Philippines anyway we can. As we know, the Philippines was recently hit by a category 5 typhoon and in need of incredible help. They are a great ally of the U.S. and an important trade partner of the U.S. and Southern California. Let’s show them our great regard. Here is a link so you can donate directly to the Red Cross of the Philippines. Any amount helps.
Thank you for your kindness! Lilia Navarrete, President, WITLA
