This project will support health and rehabilitation efforts for the victims and their families.
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.
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.
Contribute to the rehabilitation of a community that has been destroyed by the mudslide. Those who survived will need to be resettled elsewhere.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
