Typhoon Haiyan: A Personal Appeal For Help
I’m sure that you’ve all heard about the Super Typhoon Haiyan that had struck and caused widespread devastation in the Visayan Islands of the Philippines.
More than half of my family still lives in the Philippines and they are safe in the northern island of Luzon. However, about 10,000 people have been reported to have perished with millions more affected, thousands of whom are still waiting for relief agencies to get to them with basic survival provisions like food, water and shelter.
Several international relief efforts have kicked into high gear, including the deployment of Canada’s own DART or Disaster Assistance Response Team in some of the hardest hit areas like Iloilo City in Panay Island.
I’m asking for your help to donate to the Canadian Red Cross’ Typhoon Haiyan fund by following the link below or go to http://www.redcross.ca/donate/donate-online/donate-to-the-typhoon-haiyan-fund. Any amount will help and together will go a long ways to support the ongoing disaster relief in the Philippines.
Please feel free to share this letter among your own circle of friends.
Thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart!
