More donations come in everyday! We reached one million in a week (even more). And I have inside information that we breached three million for the second week! So many kind hearts and generous people giving cash and goods. THANK YOU.
We do so much work and try to bring these relief goods to the people, but it isn’t easy hearing stories of politicking by our government. Like people needing to present written notes from Barangay leaders to be able to get relief goods. Or agencies repacking international aid into local bags with their logo. Or goods rotting because they have not been “searched” yet. Or even the stopping of telling the real number of dead people! I mean, people need to know, why keep it a secret or keep the number low? Just for publicity? What is the logic in that?
Even stopping Oplan Hatid at Villamor Airbase because of politicking? Because citizens should not dictate on the government, and it should be the other way around? I thought WE were the boss? Didn’t BS Aquino say that?
So sad. And the media being blacked out. Good thing we have Anderson Cooper. Who says what needs to be said. And here he is saying it:
We are doing our part. Please, government, do yours.
The team that went to Tacloban came back with such heart-rending pictures and stories. We put the sharing of Pat into an easy to read “comic book” version. Read it here.
Here is also a sharing from one survivor:
We can keep praying things will get better. And through your donations, we can do more:
We have hope in the Filipino Spirit. Working together, we can do anything!
After raising more than 1 million pesos in a week, we still have raised donations for the continuing relief effort!
We have volunteers re-packing everything daily, and now we are ready to send even more goods to the Visayas!
With God, nothing is impossible. He gives us hope. And in the midst of despair and desolation, we know He is there ready to help us and guide us back to fullness.
Thank you. And they (the goods that the money bought) ARE reaching the people. Check here for pictures and updates.
Over three days we have raised more than half a million pesos in donations (cash and kind). Thank you for your generosity! We will be posting the pictures of the relief effort on our CFC FFL Facebook page.
Again, please volunteer to help re-packing at the CFC FFL Home Office at Apartelle 12, Starmall, EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
