Below is an initial evaluation by Anouck Justafré, the coordinator of one of our local programs, after her recent visit to Daanbantayan in the northern part of Cebu island, a region heavily hit by the typhoon:

 

“We went to Daanbantayan yesterday. The scenes were ones of desolation. Families remained on the sites of their flattened/damaged homes; the roofs had been blown off and the walls destroyed. Everything had been destroyed. Electrical poles and fallen trees continue to block roads. Along the roads, children, par­ents, grandmothers, were reaching out – reaching out to get any food they could. We were able to speak with some of the families. They have lost everything. Some of them were farmers. Their crops have been destroyed.  The school has suffered extensive damage. The roof has been destroyed and some of the walls have collapsed. The com­puter room was inundated and the refectory has been de­stroyed. The challenge right now is to not only provide shel­ter and emergency relief but to continue our long-term work to help our families and ensure the schooling of the children.”

 

We’re calling on you, our W4 community, to help affected communities. We need your help to ensure that our volunteers can provide immediate assistance to affected families and maintain educational and support services.

 

All donations can play a crucial role in the preservation of our programs. Please donate now; the magnitude of Typhoon Haiyan has created an urgent need for sustained, unwavering support from our W4 community.
