Dear Editor,

I sympathise greatly with our students at USP that our government is not responding immediately to the VC's call on the effects of the devaluation of the $FJ on the students. As such, I encourage the students to reorganise the little they have as a tempory measure while waiting for the government's response. I am sure the government will respond but not as immediate as what we might expect. I am confident that the students are already putting in place strategies that will help them manvour within their means. And I suggest, this is where the notion of being brothers in arms or carrying each others burdens in the lands of unknown become a vital strategy. Furthermore, this is also where the notion of public relations becomes an important strategy to consider. But you are encouraged to keep the momentum of informing our government back home to fulfil their oblogation in increasing the allowances.
