Typhoon Yolanda "Haiyan" Rebuilding Home


Introduction for Super Typhoon Yolanda Victims: Hello, My name is Joepet Macariola from Cebu, Philippines. For those who have just seen this Fund Raising, this was posted few weeks ago when Earthquake struck in Bohol Philippines October 15, 2013. Unfortunately almost a month after, Super Typhoon Yolanda "Haiyan" International Name has struck our Region in Visayas Thursday November 7, 2013. Tacloban, Guiuan, Bantayan Island, Iloilo, Cebu and areas in the Visayas have been hit hard and an estimated 10,000+ casualties. Our purpose for this fund raising is to buy the money for Relief Goods such as Food, Water, and Medicines. We will be donating this personally to those people who are highly affected and buying the goods directly from the grocery. Millions of money are pouring in to our government from the aid of other countries however it is uncertain if 100% of it will be sent to the victims, that is why we made our own fund raising to surely provide those who really need.

Who we are?: We are a private small company in Cebu Philippines who runs a photo editing company. My name is Joepet Macariola, you can visit my facebook www.facebook.com/joepet.macariola. You can also reach me on my personal number 329228648629 or call our office +63 32 [phone redacted].

Weeks have past and a We would like to support those who are affected by the Super Typhoon as this Fund Raising before was for the Earthquake in Bohol. We want you to share this post and continue to send in your help. Let's help everyone who has been affected by the Super Typhoon and Earthquake.

A Donors message: "we all live on this planet my friend were obliged to help each other , its our obligation as a species"

Earthquake Introduction: Hello, My name is Joepet Macariola from Cebu Philippines, i am one of the people who witnessed the earthquake in bohol right at the Epicenter which is Sagbayan, a small municipality at the center of bohol. Our family stayed in Kan-mano Bohol with the Family Masuda to spend a Vacation and a Birthday of our Late Papa Jappil Masuda. We just got back from cebu to get supplies and find help. I have never felt so scared in my life when i experienced a 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake, it was not shaking that we felt, it was more on bouncing. We were actually stranded for 2 days and luckily had some food and water. Unfortunately many families lost there houses instantly. Water also became murky which is dangerous to drink. Until i got home and saw the devastation instead of doing nothing, i have fully decided to help, not only raising funds but by going back to the area or epicenter to help people recover. For some of you who might not know me, i run a small photo editing company and built a good relationship with clients abroad. As a man who leads people, i must show them that i care for my countrymen and i will do everything. I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for those who have donated in kind and prayers, surely your donations will be delivered right at there doorstep.

What lead me?: I remember few months ago about gofundme.com that it is the fastest place to seek help. I also make use of my internet skills that is why it lead me to run an International Online Fund Raising Campaign to ask help from the International Community.

October 15, 2013 - 7.1 magnitude earthquake hits Visayas Region mainly the province of Bohol and Cebu. The Epicenter was located in Sagbayan Bohol. Many people need your help because no stores are open especially in Municipality of Sagbayan. Your donations are highly appreciated. As of the moment this area has no Electricity and Water is very scarce. The video attached is on October 16, we were able to shot some footage in the municipality. People are lining up for food and water. Children need milk and medicines.

Status: As of the moment we have around $ 800+ funds coming from Local and International Companies Abroad. We are still Continuing to contact more people abroad to send there help to those people in bohol. Thank you for Donating and for Praying to our fellow Boholano's. Until now we are still having strong Aftershocks.

Mission: To provide door-to-door Relief Goods to the families who are affected by the earthquake providing them food, water, medicine and necessary first aid kits. Help Assess the families health Condition including children who are having colds already.
