Sunday, January 15th Philippine Flood Relief

Nearly 1000 people are reported dead and hundreds more are still missing after flash floods in the Philippines following Typhoon Washi hit southern Mindanao Island and surrounding areas on the weekend. An estimated 40,000 people, many of whom were already desperately poor, are now living in evacuation centres after losing their homes and possessions. Working with our partners at the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development & Peace/Caritas Canada, the Catholic Churchs official relief representative in Canada, funds will be channelled to Caritas organizations on the ground in the Philippines. Caritas teams are travelling through Mindanao to help families affected by the flooding. In particular, Caritas Philippines, known within the country as NASSA, has sent a team to the Diocese of Iligan, where the local government is said to be running out of relief supplies. Teams are assessing the damage and coordinating the emergency response.
