>Day 5, Monday
We did not have an organized relief operation over the weekend due to the threat of Super Typhoon Pepeng which was supposed to hit Manila on Saturday. Praise God, it changed direction and did not hit Manila head on, though we did experience rain. Let us pray for the other areas of the Philippines which were hit by Typhoon Pepeng.
Here are the latest areas where we have sent the relief goods: Floodway Areas in Pasig; we cooperated with Ang Kapatiran Party for a soup kitchen in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig – which is still underwater; San Lorenzo in Pasig; Muntinlupa; San Mateo and Tanay in Rizal; Taguig; Vista Verde in Cainta; Calumag in Pasig; Binangonan in Rizal; Our Lady of Light in Cainta; St. Jude in Pasig and different towns in Laguna.
Thank you to everyone who keep donating! Many more are volunteering not only cash and goods, but their time and effort as well. And it is all appreciated. Thank you, too, to more donors: May-Brith P. Sølvsberg; Ban Tible; Moreau Catholic High School in California; Jesse Tabora; CFC FFL Tarlac; SFL Tarlac; YFL Paranaque; and, CFC FFL Cavite.
The relief effort continues, as families are still living with the effects of Typhoon Ondoy – full waterways; overflowing Laguna Lake (it is the highest recorded level of water in 92 years!); garbage piling up; and other such challenges. But, there is always hope in Christians who live the way they are called to live.
Just and righteous is He.”
I though this was the theme for 2010? 🙂
PS We still have goods ready for release, so if there are areas you know of (and contact people) who need goods and clothes, let us know ASAP.
