Nitong mga nakara ang araw, maari naririnig ninyo ang tungkol sa malaking baguio sagitna ng Pilipinas. Libo-libong mga tao na effectohan, at nag doble pa lahat ng hirap na nararanasan ng mga tao doon. Na buwag halos lahat ng mga bahay sa Tacloban, Leyte. Wala silang pagkain, tubig, gumot at comunication, at ang mas mahalaga, maraming na walan ng mga mahal sa buhay. Nakalulunos ang kalagayan ng mga tao sa mga lugar na nasalanta, at kailangan nila ang ating tulong.
These past few days, you will have heard about the super typhoon in central Philippines. Estimated to date 10,000 people have lost their lives and 9 million have been badly affected, and all problems they face have been doubled. Almost all the houses in Tacloban, Leyte, have been destroyed. The people there have no food, water, medicine or communication, and more importantly, lots have lost many loved-ones. The people in the places affected are in a very terrible state, and they desperately need our help.
This Friday as a fundraiser for this devastating disaster, we will be holding a mufti day which requires you to bring a gold coin, and an extra bit of donation. We are asking please for a minimum of at least three dollars to go towards this cause.
All money raised will be put forth to organisations helping the people of the Philippines in need at this time. Thank you so, so much for supporting our native country, and we can assure you the Filipinos will be very grateful for your help. Thank you, and salamat.
