Here people go to a makeshift charging station.  Because there is no power in most of the city.  In fact there is not much of anything.

So they go here and wait while their devices charge enough to make a call.  And hope for a signal.

We fear you’ll see more of this in the future.  You certainly have before.  The photo below shows the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the left.  On the right is Maribojoc Bohol…devastated by a massive earthquake just weeks before the typhoon.  And estimated 1000 families are still homeless in Maribojoc.

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!
