Typhoon Juaning batters Bicol Region, Manila and other parts of the Philippines.

This has been one of the most devastating typhoons that has hit the country. It seemed like not everyone knew that it could be that great. Many areas were still left flooded up to this posting, classes were suspended on the previous days for the safety of the children. Electric posts and trees have fallen, passengers were stranded in ports and airports. Water rose up so quickly that people in the affected area needed to be evacuated as soon as possible. Times like these are very heartbreaking.

The more than 600 children in Dugcal and Maravilla area who you sponsor have been doing okay despite this natural disaster. They might have been affected in some ways but they are all safe and excited to go back to school after it was suspended.

We all thank you for the help that you have been extending to these children. There is no greater feeling in this world than to know that somebody cares for you especially in these troubled times.

God Bless you for helping the children so much, particularly at times like this. They are so blessed to have the blessing of food, school support, care and love that you give them. Please follow us for more details on our facebook page.
