With the recent disasters
in the Philippines (Bohol
), the Kauai Filipino
is assembling to send aid and assistance in any way we
can. And we need your help!
Originally, the Kauai Filipino Humanitarian Society had partnered with the ABS-CBN Foundation
fundraisers to assist with the recovery of the 2013 Bohol earthquake (7.2 in
magnitude) that has destroyed many parts of the Visayas. It was our plan to
raise funds to send aid to those in need of recovery.
But unfortunately, the entire Philippines have been struck yet another
devastating blow by way of Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical
cyclones ever recorded. Current estimates of casualties from Haiyan are
estimated to be well over 10,000 in one city alone! Buildings, homes and even
shelters have been demolished. And as current news
has stated, the people of the Philippines are getting more and more
desperate as supplies and food runs out.
The Kauai Filipino Humanitarian Society will be doing our part and will be hosting
local fundraisers here in Hawaii, and as mentioned, we are partnering with
ABS-CBN Foundation to help render aid to the Philippines. And now we are
extending the relief efforts online!
The K.F.H.S is imploring fellow Humanitarians online to join in our efforts to
raise funds to aid the people of the Philippines. You can send donations of ANY
amount through this GoFundMe campaign and all monies contributed goes directly
to the ABS-CBN Foundation to help all those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We
would welcome even a penny. Every tiny bit helps!
