Rebuilding Lives, Empowering Communitiesc/o The Fair Trade Shop, Room 102, Jose R. Martinez Building, Osmeña Blvd., Cebu City
Greetings of Peace and Solidarity!
In response to the aftermath of the October 15 earthquake and Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) disasters that caused thousands of deaths and brought untold damages, devastation and suffering to millions of families, we have formed Abag! Central Visayas to answer the needs for the immediate relief of affected communities and begin their long-term rehabilitation.
Abag! Central Visayas is composed of the Cebu Bohol Relief and Rehabilitation Center (CRRC), Community Empowerment Resource Network (CERNET), Southern Partners Fair Trade Center (SPFTC), Central Visayas Farmers Development Center (FARDEC), Women’s Resource Center of the Visayas (WRCV), Iglesia Filipina Independiente-Visayas Mindanao Regional Office for Development (IFI-VIMROD), Visayas Primary Healthcare Services (VPHCS), Visayas Human Development Agency (VIHDA), Fisherfolk Development Center (FIDEC), Foundation for Philippine Environment (FPE) -Visayas Unit and other concerned civil society organizations.
As part of these efforts, we are appealing to you for any financial or material assistance in the form of bottled water, rice, canned goods, medicines, and other supplies that will be distributed to communities in Bohol, Tacloban, northern Cebu, and parts of Leyte and Samar that have not yet been reached by ongoing relief efforts.
It is a sad fact that the poor and marginalized are the most affected in times of disaster. Your help will not only help them make it through this difficult times but also help them rebuild their shattered communities.
In anticipation of your favourable response, we extend our thanks.
