“OPPORTUNITY TO ADOPT A SCHOOL
While their parents are busy rebuilding their houses ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, the school children of Sto. Rosario Elementary School in Tibiao, Antique resume basic education with hardly anything. Notebooks, papers, pencils, ballpens, crayons, erasers and sharpeners are needed by 1st to 6th graders.
If you are moved to help in this way, please send Julie Anne Osunero at this number 09175481431. She is based in Antique and is in direct contact with the principal of Sto. Rosario Elem School.
Thank you for reading and sharing this.

Tacloban #urgentcalls #YolandaPH #rescuePH
POSTED ON November 14, 2013 AT 9:32 pm
Streetlight in Tacloban is housing 72 children who have survived the storm with the orphanage staff. It seems a Negros Occidental orphanage is willing to house the kids — can anyone connect us to Kalipay Negrense Foundation?
The Norwegian who runs the orphanage has said in a CNN interview that he’d really like to get the children out of Tacloban, as they are running out of food and water.
Would anyone know of how we can get these kids to Negros Occidental? is there money being spent on just buying people tickets, or getting them on a boat? would there be a plane that PAL can just lend us, a boat or ferry that will get this people from one place to another for free? TRANSPORT SOS! #reliefPH #rescuePH
Ormoc, Roxas, Tacloban, worldwide donations: ChildFund #YolandaPH #reliefPH
POSTED ON November 14, 2013 AT 8:11 pm
ChildFund has been in various provinces in the Philippines, and have launched an emergency response.
“ChildFund emergency response teams have reached Ormoc on Leyte Island and are reporting 90 percent devastation of infrastructure. Working with our local partner organization Hayag, we are doing a head count of children in our programs. So far, no child is reported missing. However, conditions in Ormoc are grim, and communications remain down in most places. There is loss of life and some looting. Food will run out here in three days. If aid doesn’t reach here very soon, people will become desperate and the situation will deteriorate,” says Erwin Galido, ChildFund’s emergency team leader in Ormoc.”
ChildFund’s immediate goals include:
(1) Establish Child-Centered Spaces in Ormoc, Roxas and Tacloban – two centers in each city.
(2) Distribute food packs (rice, noodles and canned goods) for 3,000 families.
(3) Distribute non-food items (bath soap, children’s underwear, sanitary supplies, baby diapers and laundry soap) to 3,000 families.

worldwide donations: V-Day Rise for the Philippines #YolandaPH #reliefPH
POSTED ON November 13, 2013 AT 1:45 pm
V-Day has launched Rise for the Philippines, a V-Fund that will benefit the women and men who have been affected by Typhoon Yolanda, on the ground and immediately.
From Monique Wilson in Manila: “The country is still in desperate need for help and V-Day and One Billion Rising is calling on all of you, our Rising sisters and brothers, to please donate what you can. V-Day has set up a V-Fund to make donating easy and secure. 100% of the donations will go straight to the local GABRIELA and Gabriela Women’s Party chapters to directly benefit the people on the ground. Funds raised will be used for a women’s mission in the most affected areas – to provide direct services – food, clothing, shelter, medical and health needs specific to women – as well as psycho-social support for the women survivors. In disasters, even in evacuation centers – we know that sexual violence heightens and we need to ensure the safety and protection of the women and girls.”
From Eve Ensler in Berlin: “The need to wake up to what is happening in the Philippines is a major call for the world. I have traveled the world, far and wide – but I do not know of any organization that is as committed, as radical, as organized and as dedicated to the women in the grassroots communities as GABRIELA in the Philippines. They led the incredible One Billion Risings there. They are on the ground, with the people – and every dime you contribute will get to the women and children affected and their families. Whatever we raise through activist donations, will get matched.”
