Help Rebuild House in Philippines

Dear Friends,

12 years ago I helped build a house for my family in Burauen, Leyte--a small town about an hour outside of Tacloban. My grandmother, as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins live there together. The house is the hub that my family revolves around, but it was badly damaged during the typhoon. My grandmother and the uncle who takes care of her are both sick, and without a roof over their head, they are really struggling. I am reaching out to you for help to rebuild their house and provide some basic necessities. A little goes a long way over there, so even a small amount will make a big difference.

I am deeply grateful for your help and for the concern and kind wishes that so many of you have already expressed.

Thank you so much,
