Aid for Palo

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, we are sending throughts and prayers to those affected by this disaster - especially my relatives in Leyte and Samar. I haven't heard much news, but I have heard that most of our family's homes have been destroyed and that my relatives in Palo are staying in the last remaining house. My grandmother's brother is missing, last I heard, as well as other relatives. The people in the affected areas of the Philippines need clean water, food, and supplies to start rebuilding. I have heard that some relief aid has reached those areas and that the people there are working together in recovery efforts, but the situation is still dire.

A distant cousin of mine, Arnold Espino, who is a missionary in Vietnam, is traveling to the Philippines in a few days to deliver water, food, and supplies directly to our relatives there and to aid in the search for missing family members. James has set up a charity website to raise money to help Arnold purchase supplies to distribute.

If you are looking for a way to help the typhoon survivors, this is an opportunity to help send aid directly to the communities in Tacloban and Palo. Click on the link to read more and to donate. Thank you!
