Looking for some ways to help the people of the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan / Typhoon Yolanda? Here is what I support:
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is working with our mission partner the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) and fellow members of the ACT (Action by Churches Together) Alliance. An initial grant of $50,000 from One Great Hour of Sharing funds will help provide emergency food, water and other basic humanitarian needs to families affected by Typhoon Haiyan / Typhoon Yolanda that struck the country on November 8.
- Give online to DR000012 to support disaster response in the Philippines.
- Visit the Philippines response index for reports and resources (including a downloadable bulletin insert). Like us on Facebook (PDACARES) and share updates.
- Use the Call to Prayer for the Philippines, by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) leaders.
Many organizations are responding to this disaster. Most are reputable. Some are not. Some will make mistakes. A few will even take advantage of the people in the deepest need.
My giving goes through the Presbyterian Church because I have seen the work we do and we work in partnership with people on the ground, people directly affected.
If you have a place where you prefer to give, give generously. If you are looking for a place to give, I encourage you to try Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
See you along the Trail.
