Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Philippines was recently hit by one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded to make landfall. Bringing along with it: sustained winds of 195 MPH and gusts up to 235 MPH; Strom surges of up to 17 feet high and no less than 27 inches of rain. Consequently over 3 million people have been displaced and close to 500,000 homes have been destroyed.

Sadly, the areas that were mostly affected are costal towns where fishing is the primary source of income and most homes are shacks and shanties.
As a country and personally, I am thankful for the generosity and outpouring support that many are extending and continuing to extend to the residents of the area.

There is water, food, clothing and medicine that is immediately being brought in by many different countries, non-government agencies. And the continuous influx of support and aid is greatly appreciated.

As the clearing efforts begin, we hope to help heal the wounds that this tragedy has left behind. Within the next month, our goal is to build as many homes as possible before the Christmas season comes in.

Through the help of the Subdivision and Housing Developers Association Inc. and several other private developers and individuals, the goal is simple:

Build a house for a family and give them something to call their own again.

It takes approximately $350 to erect a new home for a family of 5.
No donation is too small and your generosity will be greatly appreciated.
Let us help the displaced families have a Merry Christmas and help them start up their lives again.
