Rebuilding Communities Affected by Disaster
As of today- November 11 2013, several hundred thousand people have been displaced after their homes were destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan which hit on November 8. Millions of others have been affected.
Earlier in the past two weeks they were hit by another typhoon and an earthquake on Bohol and Cebu . The bigger NGOs are already stretched beyond capacity in the wake of the two previous disasters .
We need funding desperately for tarps and water for the initial phase of relief leading on to materials and tools for reconstruction in the later phase of this disaster
Our volunteers come from all over the world including Canada and the US. As each volunteer, ourselves included, pay our own way to and from the disaster, we even all pitch in for our own food and our base is usually in tents so we can put every cent where its needed most.
Watch us on youtube:
At SIDR no one takes any form of pay whatsoever, we make sure that 100% of donations hit the ground and into the hands of those that really need it.
We are currently putting out a call for volunteers, skilled or unskilled to come and assist . As many hands will speed in the recovery
They can reach either Laura or myself via phone or email.
