She is in contact with Sister Eloisa David of the the Divine Word Hospital in Tacloban City, the main city in Leyte hit hardest by Yolanda. Your contributions will target rebuilding efforts for residents who have lost their homes, purchasing lumbar and roofing materials.

UPDATE

Our local contact in the areas hit by the typhoon is Sister Eloisa David of the Divine Word Hospital. With her as our guide, your donations will go towards helping to repair the damage done to individual homes, especially providing galvanized iron roofs (typical material for these homes) so residents have a roof over their heads. We are also coordinating providing medicine and helping replace critical medical equipment needed for the victims that need medical care. Victims have suffered from wound infections, loss of limb, infectious disease, among a host of other conditions.  Please se the links below for more information about the hospital.
