For almost ten years, Volunteer For The Visayas (VFV) has been building homes, supporting healthy food access, educating children and strengthening communities in and around Tacloban City, Philippines from its headquarters in Barangay (Neighborhood) 64, "Bliss Sagkahan." During Typhoon Yolanda, lives were saved as residents of villages that were flattened took refuge in community centers sponsored and built by VFV and its volunteers.
In the aftermath of the storm, though Bliss is heavily damaged, VFV is already providing shelter, food, and much needed medical care to victims of the disaster. Every dollar of your tax deductible contribution will go directly to supplies and relief for Filipinos in a time of desperate need, delivering life saving essentials in the short term and laying the foundations for safe, healthy and vibrant communities in the years to come.
For $20, we can deliver a LifeStraw to a child or family to prevent the spread of disease from water contaminate by the bodies of those who perished.
For $100, 50 pounds of repurposed medical supplies will be available to medical staff to treat the wounded and sick.
For $1000, an entire construction site can be provisioned with the tools necessary to begin work on the centers that saved lives during the storm, and will give hope and anchor communities for years to come.
As we give thanks this holiday season, please consider those in such need, and contribute to this cause today.
