Our Sponsored Child in Typhoon Flooding

We have been sponsoring a wonderful little girl in a remote area of the Philippines  for almost 4 years now though Child Fund International.  She is now 12 years old.  Yesterday where she lives was hit extremely hard by Typhoon Ulysses. 

These photos speak for themselves.  

We thank God that they are all ok, but they need help. They had so little to start with, this is just devastating for them.  I'm doing what I can but I'm asking for additional help from my family and friends.  Any donation would be greatly appreciated so I can add it to ours to send over to them.   

Skip that Starbucks, or dinner out this weekend and donate to someone who really needs it instead.

Don't ever forget how lucky we truly are in so many ways.  Let them know that people who they don't even know them care about them right along with us.  

Thank You

Mary and Arno Wichers
