Philippines Flood Disaster Victims Cry For Help

Some needy Badjao people of Dumaguete City, Philippine

The recent typhoon ‘sendong’ that took place in parts of the Philippines as you’re aware devastated a lot of homes and left so many people dead and homeless, with many losing their hard-earned property. It was really so bad, especially here in Dumaguete City where we’re based.

Also affected are the Badjao tribal people that we’re ministering to. Their case is so pathetic in the sense that no one speaks for them, being a highly marginalized and stigmatized people here in the Philippines. They lost a lot also – many killed by the flood, their sources of livelihood like canoes, which they usually use as their living accommodation washed away, but no one talks about their plight, incidentally.

The irony is that they’re not benefitting from the relief materials being distributed at present by the mainline churches and organizations, this is too bad!

During our last Christmas party for them on December 22, most of them complained to us so bitterly by lamenting on their many loses and the little we had couldn’t go around. No one listens to them – they’re not in the plan of the Government, churches or other donor agencies. But we know that they’re in the plan of God!

Based on the foregoing, we’ve decided to open up a special appeal for them, hoping that someone somewhere will hear and come over to help them. They’ve never had a home for themselves being nomadic people and they usually stay along the shorelines, which predisposes them to dangers such as the recent flooding. So the little they’ve is no more!

So, please whatever you’ve to share with them, we promise to be a good custodian of that by ensuring that it gets to them adequately. Your one Dollar ($1) or so can make a great difference in their lives.
