KI volunteers respond to Haiyan

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Mindanao was mercifully spared from the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda or Haiyan. However, KI volunteers, Ash and Nafisah placed at Gualandi Volunteer Service Programme (GVSP) in Cebu City, have been working hard with the relief effort. GVSP works with the Deaf and other people with disability, in times of disaster this group of people are often even more marginalized. GVSP has been delivering relief and psychosocial support to those in need and their families in Northern Cebu and surrounding islands where the aid response has been limited.

Ash has been working on the distribution of aid and translating signing to the hearing whilst Nafisah has been in charge of managing the donations and helping with the monumental task of organizing the logistics to procure and distribute the relief goods.

The areas affected are almost 100% Christian and so the sight of a Muslim helping their fellow Filipinos in the Visayas can only help to break down the barriers between them.

We also can report that previous KI volunteers are working as staff for the big International aid agencies in Tacloban and other areas in Leyte and Samar. This demonstrates how our project impacts in the long term. Our volunteers carry their experience and skills with them for life, empowering them to affect change in society not only when they are volunteers but for many years after.

Thank you for your support
