Housing for Christmas in the Philippines
To assist the people of the Philippines who have suffered unimaginable destruction and great personal loss we have decided to add a further dimension to our highly successful mission to this region.Full details of what was achieved will follow at a later stage.
For now we are launching a project called "Housing for Christmas in the Philippines". In Palompon Island 7000 families have lost their homes in 51 districts.
It is indeed tragic to see women,children and the elderly exposed to the environment given the ongoing rains. These are extremely poor communities with many having meagre to no income. We have managed to negotiate a deal where we can provide a building kit to repair one whole house at R2000 per family. With your support this will be the greatest Christmas Gift we could offer destitute families. We have sponsored the first 100 houses.
You are welcome to participate in this effort in whichever way you can. Part contributions welcome. Deposit into Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, Pietermaritzburg, Account Number 052278611, Branch Code 057525, reference "Housing". We want to make a significant difference by 25 December 2013.
