REBUILD Tacloban Fundraiser: the work begins after typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda (Jan. 23, 2014)
Please join us at a fundraising reception to help REBUILD Tacloban Philippines hosted by Bay Area Women's Groups in Solidarity with Filipina Women and Girls.
In the aftermath of Typhoon HAIYAN/YOLANDA women and girls have been displaced - let's help them put their lives together.
Rebuild their homes, their schools, their hospitals, their lives. Families are now living in shelters as their homes have been destroyed and are on reclaimed land.
We need your help to get their jobs back as businesses have been severely damaged and we have to find a way for these families to have a source of income.
Our hearts go out to the Women of Candahug, the "Village of Widows" - the husbands, fathers and sons stayed behind while the women and children escaped to higher ground when Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda swopped in at 200mph, surging the waves as high as 16ft. All the men died trying to save their homes.
WHEN: Thursday, January 23, 2014 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
WHERE: Credo, 360 Pine Street, San Francisco, CA
Your contribution and 100% of proceeds will support the long-term rebuilding efforts through the help of Feed the Hungry Philippines - their volunteers and staff are now on-the-ground doing relief work.
If you prefer to write a check, please mail your contributions payable to:
Feed the Hungry Philippines

San Francisco, CA 94119
Thanks and see you at Credo on January 23rd.
