What’s happened hits so close to home and deeply moved my sister and I to help out in any way we’re able. We were reluctant to donate through big organisations or other advertised groups in mainstream media, as we wanted to see our contributions in action helping those most in need.
By God’s grace, our cousin Jaba who lives in Manila is closely coordinating with community volunteers in Ilagan, Isabela and Cagayan whom she personally knows. These are small local groups who use donated funds to organise supplies such as food, water, banig (blankets/rugs), pillows and sanitary items to directly distribute to those who have been left with nothing.
We’ve created this fundraiser to reach out to our family and friends who may also want to share a donation. Any amount will go such a long way. There are photos below of the affected areas in Ilagan and Cagayan where the outreach is being directed to.
Thank you all so much for your kindness and compassion.
