Our Help is Needed

Posted 11.11.2013

typhoonAs you’ve likely seen in the news, a typhoon of historic proportions struck the Philippines this past weekend. As communications is reestablished and relief crews are reaching the stricken areas, it appears that at least ten thousand people died in the storm, entire communities have been wiped out and hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless.

It’s hard to imagine but that kind of devastation could touch any of us at any time. If it did, we would welcome whatever help anyone could provide. As you consider that, I invite you to consider joining me in making a donation to the relief efforts in the Philippines.

There are quite a number of reputable organizations with strong track records in disaster relief that you can contribute to. Here are the links to a few of them:

Oxfam America


Doctors Without Borders

If none of those organizations meet your criteria, search online for those that do. Any amount helps. If you can’t make a donation, consider offering a prayer or a thought for the victims and all those traveling to the area to assist them.
