Last December (and into January) I had the privilege of traveling to the Philippines. I traveled to the northern mountainous region of Luzon and met some wonderful people there. Most of my time was spent in a beautiful place called Baguio, a city around the same elevation as Denver, and the adjacent city of La Trinidad.
This past week these cities, and surrounding area, have been hit by a devastating typhoon and there are many needs. The area is prone to mudslides given the steep terrain and also flooding in the valleys. Many have lost everything they have worked so hard for, they have no insurance, no FEMA, and can use all the help they can get. This is why I’m doing my small part by setting up a site where those who feel led can donate: *click here*
Any funds raised will be distributed through trusted Christian connections (not Mennonite or Orthodox) and go 100% (besides what GoFundMe takes) to those in need in that region. I know even small amounts can go a long way. If you can’t give, please at least share this and give others the opportunity to bless Baguio, La Trinidad, and the surrounding areas in Benguet Province.
