Update 8 on Supertyphoon Haiyan
Photos by DS Roy Tibalbag
8 - United Methodist Churches in Northern Panay destroyed. More houses
of church members, the parsonage and their neighbors were flattened by
Typhoon Haiyan. One badly hit community is Mina-a, in Ibajay, Aklan,
which sits at the foot of a mountain. Ibajay is a third-class
municiplaity with farming as source of livelihood. The livelihood and
the crops were destroyed by the typhoon. People in this community need
help and support.
As support from all over the world pour in
Leyte, other municipalities in Northern Cebu, Capiz, Aklan, Antique,
Negros Occidental and Palawan have appealed to the international
community to not forget them. Although this communities are doing their
best to recover, the overall damage caused by the typhoon in the islands
of Visayas had made it difficult for help to be delivered. Isolated
areas has not been reached and help has not been delivered to them.
To send help to a particular church or community, please contact UMCOR or the Office of the Bishop - DEA.
