LOVE FOR LIFE FOUNDATION OF PHILIPPINE AMERICAN PHYSICIANS IN AMERICA

Build an ambulatory community health care center in a town ravaged by the Mount Pinatubo eruption to provide immediate and accessible health care services to families who were affected and displaced by the catastrophe and are now returning and rebuilding their homes and families in their respective communities. Serve impoverished communities in surrounding areas with compassionate healthcare.

When it's no longer in the news

The news media did an excellent job of covering the chaos of Typhoon Yolanda and telling the world how much of a true catastrophe this has been. This report sadly admits that attentionto our part of the world will begin to wane in the next few days and weeks, as these things naturally do. This is a reminder that the poor infrastructure, political corruption, geographical obstacles, and preexisting poverty in the Philippines will make this a very long and difficult process. Most people who can afford it are trying to leave the area and those who are staying are struggling to survive. Thank you for trusting us in ensuring that your hard-earned money will go to the right places. Please remember that we will need your help for a long time and to pass this information on to others.

As of today, we have connected with Sr. Eloisa David, a nun who is also a doctor. She and the St. Scholastica nuns run the Divine Word Hospital in Tacloban. They will be the ones who will help us distribute the food, water, clothing, and building materials that your donations will provide. We will try to repair the roofs of homes that are still standing so people have shelter. We plan to reach out to the rural and outlying areas, Samar, Cebu and other islands affected by Yolanda. Please share our information to your friends, co-workers, and colleagues who may want to help. Media coverage will fade soon but recovery will take years.

Thank you.

update

Tacoban has received the widest media attention and rightly so. But let us remember the wide swath Yolanda cut across the Philippine Archipelago, including, rural areas, villages, barrios that the media cannot access. With the help of the Kapampangan Development Foundation, the Malampaya Foundation (both in the Philippines) and the numerous Filipino organizations in New England, it is these remote areas that we want to focus out attention  (Samar, Coron). Our goal is $20,000 to cover food, water, medicine, transportation, clothinh.  This relief effort will take a long time, and will continue once the media has nothing further to say.
