Philippine Earthquake Humanitarian Relief
The Archdiocese of Toronto is now accepting financial contributions for humanitarian relief as the death toll continues to rise following an earthquake that struck the central Philippines on October 15.
The earthquake, centred about 620 km southeast of Manila, has been blamed for more than 160 deaths so far, with hundreds of people injured and dozens still missing. Government reports suggest more than 158,000 people have been displaced, with 100,000 of them were housed in 85 evacuation centres. The official Catholic relief agency on the ground, NASSA-Caritas Philippines, has already released fund assistance to augment the relief operation of the dioceses in the Bohol region. Local funds from the local church are also being tapped to also provide emergency assistance to the affected localities.
Those wishing to help may do so in the following ways:
- Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: www.archtoronto.org
- By phone through the Development office – (416)934-3411
- Through the parish, making cheques payable to: St. Cecilia’s Church – Philippine Earthquake – Humanitarian Relief
