CALL FOR DONATIONS due to Typhoon Pedring

Dear brethren, once again I call on your generosity in assisting our poor brethren who have been afflicted by the recent typhoon. If our whole worldwide family pitches in, even in small amounts, that would become substantial in helping out the least of our brethren. Thank you in advance for your generosity. God bless you always.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

Last year, we started to rebuild houses for 16 CFC FFL families in Navotas who were victims of fire. They are part of the Member Housing Initiative that we are doing for the Work with the Poor (WWP). We started to get donations from brothers and sisters here in the Philippines and abroad, and initiated the construction process. Currently, we have built 3 houses out of the 16 units.

 

Unfortunately, we are struck again by another calamity. Typhoon Pedring hit the whole of Luzon, including Metro Manila. One of the areas that was hardest hit is Navotas. 2 of the houses that we built were destroyed by sea waters; and the other one is close to destruction. Also, the rest of the families who are staying in shanties also lost their homes. While we were already in the process of rebuilding those houses, now we are back to square one.

 

I would like to ask for your assistance to help these brethren rebuild their homes all over again. Any donation would be of great help: monetary, clothes, kitchen utensils, beddings, blankets would be greatly appreciated. You can send your donation to the CFC FFL Home Office (Apartelle 12, Starmall, EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City).

 

For inquiries, you can call us at (02) 718 2213 and look for any WWP full time worker.

 

Your Brother in Christ,

 

Pat Oconer
