The devastation in our beloved mother country, Philippines, specifically in Leyte and Samar, calls for immediate and emergency assistance to these areas.
CHSNAF has partnered itself to three NGOs:
- FEED the HUNGRY - geared towards meeting the immediate and basic needs if the victims through food and water; after the crises, to help with setting up infrastructure such as shelters, housing, for the victims.
- WATER FILTRATION units through the UP Medicine - Mu Sigma Phi Foundation - an organization made up of UP physician alums in the US assisting victims by way of self help water filtration units to hydrate the population and to prevent the spread of disease by having clean, potable water available.
- The SSpS houses in Tacloban and Cebu suffered devastation from the largest typhoon (Yolanda) in recorded history. The house in Cebu now shelters 2000 refugees from Tacloban. Immediate help is desperately needed to feed this population through CHSNAF so it can receive direct assistance.
