Typhoon and Earthquake Relief for the Philippines

About This Cause

At 8:12 AM on 15 October 2013, An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.4 on the Richter Scale has hit the Visayas part of the Philippines mostly affecting the province of Bohol and parts of Cebu. It is the strongest that has hit the Visayas and the second strongest that has hit the Philippines in the 21st century. A magnitude 7 earthquake has an energy equivalent to 32 Hiroshima atomic bombs. Until now, 885 earthquakes or aftershocks have been felt around the islands and has cause people to stay outside in camps. The death toll has risen to 144 with 300 people injured and massive amount of people homeless with no food or water.


In a poor country like the Philippines, it is very hard to recoup from disasters of this magnitude. Many people are living outside their homes in fear of aftershocks from the earthquakes. Hospitals are forced to evacuate patients outside for the same reasons. A number of heritage sites and 500 year old churches built by the Spanish have been severely damage beyond repair. Roads and bridges are damaged making it impossible to get from one town to another and crippling the tourism industry of Bohol.


We are trying to raise money to aid those people that have been displace by the earthquakes. There are a lot of people with no food, water, and proper shelter. Most are being camped out in open fields to avoid the danger of building collapsed due to aftershocks. Some government help have been administered but not completely.


We hope to raise money to supplement the help from the government and other non governmental organization. The faster we can raise funds, the faster we can help those in need in the current. Please help our brothers and sisters in the Philippines!

All Proceeds will go to the ABS CBN Sagip Kapamilya Foundation.

    I would like to take this opportunity to show my deepest gratitude to those who benevolently contributed to raise money for those affected in the Earthquake that occurred in Bohol and Cebu. Through numerous trials and tribulations and not to mention setbacks, like Typhoon Yolanda, the people in the central Visayas are still trying to get their lives back on track. This process will be long and continuous support from the international community as well as Filipinos living around the world. Through this fundraising effort, we have manage to raise $4,751.76 which $2,500 have already went to the Rotary Club of Tubigon and $2000 will go to a small group in Cebu who is doing work in sending relief goods around Cebu and currently helping out with the nutrition of over 2000 refugees from Tacloban whose been hit really hard by the Typhoon. We will continue our fundraising efforts in light of the current situation in the Philippines. This site will continue to open and collect offerings. Plans to raise money for the devastating typhoon that hit Leyte are already in the works. Thanks for supporting our efforts!

    Just got confirmation today of the donors of your more than generous donations: Hi Mark, good day to you! Finally I received your donation from Western Union just a while ago. Here is the computation from the receipt I received viz: Amount received by Western Union = $ 2,463 Documentary stamp Tax = 3.69 TOTAL = $ 2,459.36 $ 2,459.36 X P42.10 ( exchange rate ) = P 103,539.06 This will be deposited to the account of Rotary Club of Tubigon at First Consolidated Bank here in Tubigon together with other donations local and foreign. We have gone to barangay Guiwanon yesterday and distributed relief goods 278 families. Next in line is the barangay of Tanawan, a far flung barangay ( according to some jokes " diez ray plete paingon langit ). The RC Tubigon planned to implement the 2nd phase of our relief effort, which is rebuilding / or a sustainable project that will benefit a community. Last night the Tubignons experienced another life threatening calamity. There was a low pressure area that converted into a typhoon called Wilma at the Visayas area. It rained so heavily for 3 hours starting at 6 pm. and ended at around 9:30 pm. We had flood water oveflowing from clogged canals due to debris from fallen cement/ hollow blocks, etc. Water started to rise, and again people scrambled to flee to higher grounds. Praise God! the rain stopped, and water subsided, but we never had a good night rest, afraid it might rain again. The western visayas area is preparing for a " super typhoon " Pagasa said called Haina. It might enter the PAR on Friday. Please help us pray, it will be diverted to other areas. We are still gaining momentum towards of reaching our goal. We just passed the 4,000 dollars mark which equate to 176,885.36 Philippine peso. Thanks again for the support and lets keep helping each other!
