We continue to prepare as our Gentle Hands PHASE 1 team goes this coming weekend to assess the most effective strategy for relief from the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda).
As we are flooded with the news, both locally and internationally, regarding the incredible damage and resulting need, our hearts and minds are continually praying for the victims and their extreme loss. To fully understand the extent of this catastrophe is impossible except for those who have lived through it. BUT, we reach towards them armed with hope, love and a wilingness to do whatever we can.
Gentle Hands will do all we can in the coming days.
That being said, we are encouraged by the generous support from so many of you around the world. ‘Thank-you’ doesn’t seem to be a big enough word.
In preparation for PHASE 2, we have already started collecting donations, money and gifts in-kind.
These are the items we are now collecting donations for:
~ Medicines: basic meds, gastro meds, analgesic meds, fever, respiratory, skin meds.
~Food packets that are appropriate (nothing that requires water as an ingredient,)
~Tinned food with pull tab lids
~Water purifying tablets
~Candles and matches
Please give generously today.
Simply click on the WAYS TO GIVE tab and choose which ever option is best for you to give.
We cannot do this alone. Every gift matters – big or small.
TOGETHER we will bring hope and love to Leyte.
