Ghost Town

1453474_10201864028033771_468419590_nWe see crowds and somethings outright mobs gathered wherever there are television crews.  But away from the cameras, there is only destruction, death, and despair.

Dennis Saco and his team do not attract the same attention as the media and foreign relief workers.  While this certainly will change when they come back bringing food, they still have the advantage of being a group of Visayan Filipinos.  This has allowed them to make assessments of the local needs and make contacts without gathering a mob.  Under normal circumstances it is amazing how people’s behavior and attitude toward you change as soon as they realize you’re living in America.  Even if you grew up in their neighborhood.

Campaigner Dennis Saco is taking his team back to Leyte and Samar.   You can see on the news that massive amounts of international aid are not being distributed.   This team bypasses the failed distribution system by just going and doing good.  And they do this at some degree of personal risk.  They have proven themselves during relief efforts after the Bohol Earthquake.  Your money goes directly to Dennis and his team buys supplies.   You will see photos and/or videos of them delivering the supplies directly to people in need!

Please help them!  The Ready to Eat Relief Packs they have assembled from local supplies cost US $2.50.   It takes very little money to make a big impact upon people who have not eaten in a week!
