update

A few updates for you:

Our point person in Leyte is Sister Eloisa David, a nun of the Saint Scholastica Order which runs the Divine Word Hospital in Tacloban. She is also a doctor of medicine. We connected with her through the Kapampangan Development Foundation and Mrs. Sylvia Ordonez which runs the Dr. Jesus A. Datu Medical Center (JADMC).        

  1. knowing the outpouring of immediate disaster relief, via large and small organizations alike, we are mindful of the fact that people will have long-term problems and there will be a host of medical concerns related to such calamities for a very long time. We also know that many of these organizations are for disaster relief. Our role is long term. We don't just want to give hand-outs (which is surely needed now). We want to help in self-sustinence. 

  2. we want to target areas affected by the typhoon but not publicized in the news

  3. we realize that these natural disasters are guaranteed to happen again, esp. in this part of the world. We are trying to find ways to help Filipinos be better prepared for the next one

  4. we have received the acknowledgement and cooperation of numerous individuals and organizations, too many to mention here, and many of you who are receiving this email. Each and everyone who has donated will be acknowledged individually.

  5. we are making 100% sure that your donation goes to the right person and project. The enthusiasm and commotion going on currently is heartening but can also become confusing. 

  6. our work is year round. Please remember that we continue even when the media and disaster relief organizations have left, and to consider a tax-deductible donation even when there isn't a calamity with the magnitude of Haiyan.
