Relief For The Philippines By Barbara A. McGuire

UPDATE: Hundreds of survivors were moved to Manila, where the local churches are now overwhelmed. They quietly lament “we have lost everything”. There was a report of a woman whose family members survived Haiyan, the worst typhoon on record; but then later died from starvation. The little island they lived on was completely devastated and no help arrived in time to bring them food or water.

Our CPSP colleagues have been training chaplains in Baguio to be ready to go to Manila to provide support. The needs are endless.

Many generous donations have been coming in and we thank those who have already donated but we need additional support. Please consider sending a donation today. Any amount you can afford will make a BIG difference.

The New Amsterdam Chapter, New York with the Philippines team is committed to bringing help and healing to our typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) survivors.

The stories coming out of the Philippines are unimaginable. Rushing water and wind tearing children away from their parents’ arms.
Haiyan was one of the most intense typhoons on record. This storm left catastrophic and unimaginable destruction behind.
