Support Relief for Philippines Mudslide Victims



This project will support health and rehabilitation efforts for the victims and their families.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

On Feb. 17, 2006, heavy rains caused a massive mudslide in the central Philippines. Mudslides buried the village of Guinsagon and swamped an elementary school; it is feared that 1,800 have died. There is a need for blankets, food and shelter, medicine, and other supplies for survivors, evacuees from surrounding villages, and their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Contributions will enable our project partner, St. Scholastica's College of Health Sciences, to provide medical care and shelter, including purchasing medicine, food, blankets and other necessities.

Potential Long Term Impact

Contribute to the rehabilitation of a community that has been destroyed by the mudslide. Those who survived will need to be resettled elsewhere.
