Typhoon Aftermath

The families we support are extremely poor with most living in the country side. Many are farmers deeply affected by the recent typhoon and subsequent flood. Many have lost their homes and possessions, their crops and even loved ones. We continue to collect donations to help those who were most severely impacted. Australian donations are tax deductible.
