Typhoon Haiyan Relief Efforts for Leyte

This is what is left of Brgy. Casuntigan near where my family lives.


This is the main road leading through Casuntigan.

Hello everyone,

My name is Jeneen. I live in Antioch CA with my loving husband, Gabe, and my 3 beautiful children. My grandmother, Maria Paguipo, and the rest of my family, 4 uncles and their families as well as 3 Aunts along with their families, have been directly affected by the recent Typhoon in the Philippines (26 family members total). They live in MacArthur Leyte which is about 50 miles south of Tacloban City. We were overwhelmed with joy and relief when we learned that all of them had survived. GOD truly had His hand upon them during the storm. Now that the dust has settled, they are in desperate need of basic necessities such as food, water and shelter. We have started this fund to help aid in their survival and the rebuilding of their lives. The money will go directly to food, water, toiletries, clothing, medicine, blankets, shelter, and help to get them back on their feet and living life again. Four out of their 8 homes were completely destroyed in the storm, so the money raised will also go to rebuilding those homes that were destroyed; as well as repairing those that were badly damaged. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for all those that have already contributed or shared their story, we are forever grateful for your generosity, compassion, thoughts and prayers for our family.

God Bless,
Jeneen & Gabe Balanag on behalf of the Paguipo & Redaja families
