I’m not feeling good and need to go home. Was going to shut down this laptop until I read the letter. So I decided to share it before I head for home.
A Filipino executive sent a letter to CNN. He says, “Last night, I listened to a CNN reporter wondering about the absence of night flights in Tacloban, in the context of the government not doing enough to bring in relief goods. It was like listening to newbie executives from Tokyo, London or the USA with no real international experience, yet assuming that their country’s rules and circumstances applied equally to the rest of the world. That was the proverbial last straw: I knew I had to react and call your attention to a few things.”
On October 8, 2011, I posted an article about this non-government organization and shared the article I wrote for them. I am saying this to let you know that SOS Children’s Villages Philippines is NOT a bogus NGO, in case anyone doubts immediately. I know they are real and I can vouch for them because I used to work for them. Anyway, I am really posting because this is the best way I can think of to be able to really help them in this time of need. Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) has devastated the SOS Tacloban Village and traumatized the kids.
Filipinos and non-Filipinos alike, kindly send donations either in cash or in kind. The children especially need help. The Village is their family. They have gone through a lot in their young lives already and this is already too much! SOS Children’s Villages Philippines has been giving underprivileged kids homes they can call their own for more than 40 years. I know you might be helping Tacloban already, but I am still appealing for more hearts to send help as well to this Village.
This is their most recent update in Facebook, as of this writing:
Kindly send donations for the sake of the kids living in the SOS Tacloban Village
