A Note on the Philippines

Prayers are needed, but material aid is of critical importance if a great natural disaster is to be prevented from becoming a humanitarian catastrophe. There are huge numbers of people including women and children who are in want of the most basic necessities of life including food and safe drinking water. Please do not donate clothes or food. The logistics of moving donated items to major disaster areas is such that it is almost always better to give cash. The various charitable agencies with great experience in handling disaster relief know what is needed and how to get it quickly and cheaply from point A to where it is most needed.

If you can spare a little money please consider a contribution to a reputable charity.
