I’d like to highlight the efforts of World Vision. A pastor friend of mine works for WV, so I endorse this organization without hesitation:
World Vision is launching relief operations today after an unprecedented rainfall brought by Typhoon Ketsana caused floodings all over Metro Manila and nearby provinces affecting thousands of people yesterday. It was packed with maximum winds of 85 kph and gustiness of up to 110 kph.
“People’s houses were submerged in just a matter of few minutes giving them no time to secure their food and belongings. There is a need to respond,” says HEA Director Jose “Boy” Bersales. WV initially conducted a call and text brigade to check the status and needs of the staffs in flood affected areas.
He adds, “We are prioritizing food aid assistance to 100 flood-affected staffs here in Metro Manila as the government is providing initial relief to other affected persons. This will last them for two to three days.” WV guards, messengers and janitors who were impacted are also beneficiaries.
Food aid consist of the following: 1 bottled water (5 liters), 12 pcs noodles, 6 cans sardines, oatmeal, 1 pack biscuit, 6 cans corned beef, 5 kg rice, 1 pack instant coffee, 1/2 brown sugar, 2 cans pork and beans and 1 chocolate drink.
They want to help 3000 families w/ 3 day survival relief packs costing P2000 each. For cash donations, please deposit at BPI account number 4251-0024-15 or BDO account number 2700-4341-1..
