It has been 2 weeks since Typhoon Haiyan hit Philippines and hundreds of bodies are still being uncovered from the rubble each day. It is a grim and arduous reality. Let us continue to remember and offer support in the aftermath of this brutality of the storm.
Adelene and her husband Nick from ACTS Philippines, has headed to Cebu to be on ground to support the Salesian sisters with relief efforts. They will be representing CHARIS and ACTS in response to deliver water filters, solar light sets and other essentials like medicine, ready to eat food, and assist in raising additional funds that may be needed. They will be moving with the sisters to visit typhoon hit areas in northern Cebu, which we are told by Sr Sarah that 'the damages are truly enormous and the suffering of the people heartbreaking.'
Thank You and God Bless.
