Remembering Yolanda Victims

I just wanna share my photo when I participated the "Church Charity Event" back in May of this year. I was invited by a friend who has a Priest's friend in California. We went to church to send the donation from the US. The amount of the donation from the Filipino-Americans, I could say would be a great help to the church.

It is exactly one year now when "Yolanda" with international name "Haiyan" hit the country. The strongest typhoon ever recorded in the history that devastated millions of Filipinos. I had heard the victims stories first hand by talking with them. The horrible stories that no one among us would want to experience, but I was there to listen, I cannot help but sympathized. I could only say that I was lucky enough to have not experienced the same fate. I have seen how resilient the Filipinos are, they are willing to move forward and get back to their normal lives. This is the Filipino spirit.

Please join me with the prayers for those who lost their loved ones. WE would also like to say Thank you to all the people all over the world with all the help.

May I know, does the church keeps certain percentage of donations that they received?
Do they keep it to invest and in return help back their people?

Typhoons and other devastating events are always an awful shock to the countries they hit. I hope that people affected by Yolanda are beginning to put this behind them.
