Flooding in The Philippines

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Some of you may have seen the news reports about the severe flooding that occurred last month in the Philippines as a result of tropical storm Haikui, Typhoon Saola and the heavier than average annual monsoons. ICC’s children’s village was impacted as two of the houses in the children’s village were affected by flood water. The bridge and front gates were also washed away.

Fortunately the children are safe. Praise the Lord. The school provided shelter for some of the indigenous families from the community.

ICC Australia launched a fundraising effort to help resolve the issues. This includes:

  • Emergency repairs to children’s homes
  • Medicines/vitamins
  • Front access road temporary repair
  • Food, clothing, personal care items, medical supplies and kitchen items for indigenous families
