Church, Red Cross, other groups send aid to typhoon victims

By |


Help is on the way.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle and other Church officials on Thursday offered their condolences and assistance to victims of Typhoon “Pablo.”

Tagle and Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, president of the  Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), said the Church would mobilize its parishes and resources for the relief effort.

The Geneva-based International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) made an urgent appeal for more than P190 million to assist 10,000 families (50,000 people) in the disaster zone.

The Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Association of the Philippines (PHAP) also allocated an initial P4.9 million worth of medicines while the Philippine Medical Association will be sending doctors.

“We have mobilized the medicine industry’s collective corporate social responsibility arm to assess the needs and offer many of the medicines they may require,” said PHAP executive director Reiner W. Gloor.

“On behalf of the entire Archdiocese of Manila, we send our solidarity and condolences. Besides prayers, we promise to do what we can to send you help,” Tagle said in an interview with Radio Veritas.

Tagle said he had ordered all parishes in the archdiocese and Caritas Manila to seek donations for the typhoon victims.

“Our parishes, with Caritas Manila taking the lead, are already working to assure you that you are not alone in this time of need. Strengthen yourselves. The Lord and your brothers and sisters in Christ are with you,” Tagle said.

Palma said he had directed social action centers in Cebu to seek cash donations and urged other bishops to pray and mobilize their charitable institutions to help the victims.

“To our brother bishops, we should be thankful that we were not affected but of course our hearts bleed, especially for the victims of the typhoon. It’s better to give than to receive,” Palma said.

The IFRC said P193,260,402 was needed to help the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) assist 10,000 families.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said the typhoon affected over 120,000 people in 13 provinces and around 87,000 were in 162 temporary evacuation centers. With reports from Tina G. Santos, Tarra Quismundo and Mar Arguelles, Inquirer Southern Luzon

    Money is so precious that the Archdiocese of Manila won’t still part with some of their billion-peso bank deposits. I wonder what will it take to make them to let go of the dough. 

    • jenny lim

      …precisely that’s what Caritas is doing.  You’re a faultfinder – doing nothing.

      • MULEN

        Caritas Manila owes its charitable work from donations and volunteerism. The billions of pesos in bank deposits of the Archdiocese of Manila remain intact and growing.  

      • jenny lim

        You’re making up stories – in the first place – how would you know?

        Why you can’t simply appreciate the effort of the Archdiocese to help?  It still holds – you’re just simply a fault finder – doing nothing.

      • MULEN

        Dami satsat mo bro di masagot sagot kung saan napunta yang bilyones. Simple lang tanong saan napunta ang pera ng simbahang katoliko? Sa kawang gawa? Hindi ganyan ang kalakaran ng Simbahang Katoliko. Kung hindi dahil sa settlement for the sex abuses committed by the clergy, hindi mahahalungkat ang bilyon bilyong investment at deposito ng iba ibang archdiocese. Hangad magpayaman naging bangkarote dahil sa kahayukan ng laman ng mga musmos na kabataan. Bangkarote ang archdiocese of Boston, Los Angeles, Denver, San Diego, Portland. Bangkarote ang simbahang katoliko ng Ireland at Canada. Ipon ng ipon sa abogado at litigasyon lang napunta ang yamang pinaghirapan ng mananampalatayang katoliko.  

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HKLP2AAOAR42DF6ZSECKTURUOU Egon

         oo naman, maraming pera ang simbahan. at para sa mga taong tulad mo na walang financial literacy ata sa katawan, e ito ay mali. hindi na kailangan ng scandals na pinagsasasabi mo para malaman yan. logic lang, billions ang myembro ng simbahan, malamang e billions din ang pera. Pero maraming ginagastusan ang simbahan, may ampunan at kung ano ano pang charitable institutions. Paano kung bukas bigla na lang hindi na magdonate ang mga tao? paano kung yung iba na piso na lang binibigay na sinusumbat pa e di na rin nagbigay? paano na tatakbo ang mga charitable institutions ng simbahan? ano na mangyayari sa pagpapalaganap ng Salita ng Diyos na siyang pangunahin ding responsibilidad at dahilan kung bakit may simbahan? 

        ang OA ng kwento mo about bankruptcy ng mga diocese sa US. Masyado kang nagpapapaniwala sa tabloid at anti-catholic tracts. nakakaawa ka naman. you believe everything you read. You better not read, sabi nga ng isang japanese proverbs.

      Mulen, any money the church has is there to make her charitable apostolate outlast empires and dynasties. If the Church sold her possessions, she might make a dent against poverty for a year or two then have to rely on people like you for charity. frightening! Anyone who doesn’t understand what it means being there for the long haul is apparently ignorant of how the church operates.

    • filipinaskoh

      Wrong! Every calamity Christian churches(born again) always donate to their local churches- dun nila ipinapaabot ang lahat ng donations. Actually with or without calamity we always send donations to the less fortunate. DI NAMAN KASI NAMIN PINU-PUBLISH EH. That is the preaching of Jesus Christ – kaya nga may parable sya tungkol dito eh. If you give wag mo ng ipangalandakan -just give wholeheartedly. Ang liliit nga lang ng mga churches namin at konti-konti lang ang members pero LAHAT NAGBIBIGAY kahit na iyon ding mahirap.

      Ang Catholic ngayon pa lng nag mobilize ng BUONG CHURCH – naka-ANNOUNCE PA. konti na lang kundi i-megaphone sa cellphone.

  • jenny lim

    I just remember in one of the parishes in my place.  When Catholics have procession at dawn while praying the rosary, pinagtawanan sila ng mga miyembro ng “dating soriano” at “iglesia ni manalo” [ganito ata ang itinuturo sa kanila].  Ngunit pagdating ng piyesta, ‘yung kumpol kumpol na bahay nila ay nasunog kahit umuulan.  Ang unang pumunta ‘dun na may dalang bigas, noodles at sardinas ay ang Social Action ng Parokya – walang Katoliko ‘dun sa mga nasalanta pero tinutulungan pa rin.  And after that, pumunta ang Pastor para kunin ang 10% tithing nila and told them – ‘wag na ‘wag kayong makinig at makihalubilo sa mga Katoliko kasi sa impiyerno ang bagsak nila.

    Hehehe. Kawawa naman ang turong ito.  Ang sinasabuhay ang bibliya sa pamamagitan ng magandang gawain sa pagtulong ng kapwa ay mapunta sa impiyerno at yung gumamit ng bibliya para maningil ng 10% sa miyembro at maninira ng Katoliko ay pupuntang langit.

    Tanong lang po, sino ngayon ang mukhang pera?

    That is only for the Archdiocese of
    Manila. But for various dioceses in Mindanao, they have already mobilized the
    parishes and social action centers. For example in CDO, Archbishop Antonio
    Ledesma headed the Executive Committee (in coordination with DSWD) of the
    coordinating body between the LGU of CDO and Misamis Oriental. Members of the
    committee include, among others, various national offices, local LGUs, NGOs (such
    as OXFAM, UNICEF), catholic schools and the various parishes. Xavier
    University-Ateneo de Cagayan, for example, turned into an evacuation center
    when Pablo pounded CDO. Other chapels and churches in far-flung areas turned
    into evacuation centers when government assistance cannot reach those areas immediately.
    Right now, Operation Tabang (Tulong) ComVal (Compostela Valley) is being
    initiated by the Archdiocese and the catholic schools. Since CDO has ZERO casualties,
    relief goods received from various donors are going to be shipped to those
    affected in ComVal and Davao Oriental through the respective dioceses and
    parishes there.

     

    I can still recall various experiences
    when CDO was hit by Sendong last year and Pablo last week. In Burgos Street and
    Consolocion area which lie along the Cagayan River, there is an Iglesia ni
    Cristo church in that vicinity. When evacuees started knocking at its doors for
    an overnight stay they were turned down by its members because it is the “house
    of God”. It is also the same with the Victory Chapel of the born-again when
    evacuees were not allowed to enter. Fortunately, the Archdiocese was able to
    rescue them (regardless of their religious affiliation) and they were allowed to
    take temporary shelter in the pastoral center, in various catholic schools and university
    i.e. Ateneo de Cagayan.

     

    INC and born-again are just making lip
    service at its best.

    • jenny lim

      O ayan mga critics ng Catholic Church. Sampal sa mukha n’yo?  San’ naman ang effort ng mga sektang panay quote ng bibliya?

      At teka muna, bakit parang walang pakialam si Lagman, Cayetano at Santiago?  Hmmm talaga ngang mahal nila ang mga mahihirap.  Minadali nila ang RH Bill kasi para sa mga mahihirap ito kaya hindi muna sila puedeng tumulong ngayon kahit mamatay na sa gutom ang binagyong mga mahihirap.  Sa isip nila, magtiis lang kayo, pag mag botohan na at mapasa itong RH Bill, padalhan kayo ng libreng pills at condom para hindi kayo magkaanak – very effective solution indeed.  Pero ang totoo, sabi nila, yes ayos na ang commision namin.

    I just wish that Vatican also help our fellow people. Not only through prayers but basic needs of our brothers sisters in Mindanao. 
    This is out of the story but I don’t know if it’s true, I’ve heard over a radio news yesterday that the Catholic Church is blaming the politicians on why this tragedy happened. The church leaders apparently blaming them because of the RHBill. If it’s true then I think it’s way too stupid to comment on something like that. The church is way too off.

        Prayers, old clothes na magagamit pa, volunteer for relief operations, etc. Sana ganun din kayo. 

    • James

      The Vatican will donate because they wanted to donate and not because some frog said they should.

      If ever they will donate, frogs will not know about it.

       way off or is it the truth? Dec. 3, what did malacanang do? Call on the congressmen to meet them during lunch to tackle about..guess what..the RH bill. Imagine, as early as Dec 2, there were warnings already about the coming storm. But the Palace prioritize the “lobbying” of the RH bill rather than focusing on the preparation of our country against the storm. So is it wrong to blame the RH bill for what happened? No. Because it is one big reason why it happened.

      • Immortal

        Just for the fairness of everyone, in my opinion, it is not right to blame malacanang because government officials were already given instruction down at Mindanao to evacuate and prepare it’s people for the incoming storm. Kahit sa America, kahit gaano sila kaprepared ay di nila naiwasan magkaroon ng deaths. Most of our brothers and sisters are not aware that it would be like that. Naisip ko lang na hindi ata maganda na sabihin mga pari sa mga politician (I’m not defending politicians ha, just being fair) na dahil sa kanila kaya nagkaroon ng masamang panahon at nagkatrahedya. Ganun kasi ang dating sa akin ng balita. God will not put his people in harms way, even if half of the Filipinos think RH bill is evil and half thinks it’s good at the same time.

    Pro RH:  Bakit kaya pag tinalakay ang RH Bill ay biglang bumagyo at may kalamidad.

    Anti RH:  Simple lang yan bro., pinakita lang sa’tin ng kalikasan kung anu ang totoong problema na dapat solusyonan.

    Pro RH:  Ah, tama, dapat di na magkaanak yung mga nanirahan dun para wala nang babagyohin.

    Anti RH:  Hindi po. Dapat yung bilyones dun mapunta sa kanilang hanapbuhay, agrikultura at edukasyon.

    Pro RH:  Yes, pro edukasyon ang RH, tuturuan sila paano magsuot ng condom para walang HIV.

    Anti RH: Hindi po. Dapat tutulungan at suportahan sila to be hard working and live with dignity.

    Pro RH: Yes po, the government will assure them “a safe and pleasurable sex”.

    Hehehe ganito ang argument ng RH Bill. Pro poor nga!

    donate to Philippine Red Cross
     

  • Horst Manure

    The red cross is a SCAM they only donate so much and pocket the rest, look at their record in USA after Katrina and Sandy.  Donate only to some one you can trust.

    • kapitanvic1

      At times like these, if you have nothing good to say, might as well keep your mouth shut. I am willing to bet you have never donated a single penny in your life or maybe you yourself represent a SCAM.

    • Vertumnus

      It boggles the mind how you come up with such nonsense!  The Red Cross has been the most trusted agency for disaster relief since it’s founding in 1881 and  you have the audacity to accuse them of scamming?  Like every organization in the world, whether they are relief foundation or corporation, money has to be spent to buy supplies and other ancillary materials so they can do their job.  The Red Cross can be trusted to be there when disaster strikes and they rely on donation to help those who are in need.  It might be a good idea to broaden you mind a little.

      • Garo Ungaro

        that goes to show there’s a need for education…? sometimes hearsay is the culprit…and more positive communication…its sad…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7KVSRARDCOFVRGY7J5OUIB2PCE MJ

    through the foreign aids that poured after Sendong, the Red Cross used to build more than 1,900 shelters in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, health and hygiene facilities, and train volunteers in the affected communities to help them become resilient to disasters. 

    Red Cross does not only provide relief packs, but they also distribute non-food items such as blankets, jerry cans, kitchen ware, and home repair kits to qualified beneficiaries.

  • filipinaskoh

    I respect the Catholic church – I admire what they are doing for the victims now.. But this is their first to mobilize the whole church to do an assistance. I hope it will not be the last. I hope they didn’t do it because they are being the target of criticism of not giving any help to their parishes.

      huh? first time ba kamo? tga saan po kau at d nyo nakikita ang gawain ng Inang Simbahan? o bka nmn tga Mars o ibang planeta kau nanggaling? Noon at ngaun nndyan ang Inang Simbahan tumutulong kahit anong sakuna mn yan…Khit sa Ibayong dagat tulad ng Japan earthquake nndyan na ang CRS para tumulong…Eh ang Catholic Church ng Pilipinas nagpadala na agad ng tulong…

      Mahiya kau sa sarili nyo..pumunta kau sa mga liblib na lugar nndun na ang Inang Simbahan para tumulong…wla pang media coverage noon..ngaun lng nila (media) binalita…kung nanonood kau ng balita sa TV hindi nyo rin ba napuna kahit hindi binigyan ng importansya ng media sa balita nahahagip nmn sa awa ng DIOS ang tulong ng Simbahan tulad ng evacuation centers o mga schools ng Simbahan…

      Kasi d kau Katoliko..tumahimik kau pag wlang alam sa gawaing Simbahan..kung meron man inggit ang umiiral sa puso mo pag charity works ng Inang Simbahan ang pag uusapan..

      Sige kau babahain kau ng batikos ng mga Katolikong nanahimik at kau nmn ang nag udyok sa kanila para magsalita laban sa kasinungalingan nyo…

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/276L22SZM5ZUQGV24IL4ZEF6UA Edward

      target of criticism from whom? ikaw rin isang kasalanan sa mata ng DIOS at tao ang pagsisinungaling…saan po ninyo nakuha (o bka namn imbento nyo lng) ang ganoong impormasyon? Sigurado ako galing sa mga post ng mga kultong tulad nyo..kya doon kau nakakuha ng impormasyon…

      Were you living in a cave?  This is not the first time that the church helps those who are in need.

      • Garo Ungaro

        remember all the wealth the church posses comes the people…through all means donations…the accumulated wealth by the church are use to pay for their existence…investment made by the church comes from the faithful…the richest vatican in it self as the holy see .is immune to all..as they are a state with in the state…all the donations of the faithful part of it goes to vatican for investments…secrecy of all this investment makes them the richest in the world..same as what the church is doing here…their funds and existence are at the mercy of the faithful here..that is why they are fighting tooth and nail…cause their existence is threaten …their investments and no tax category keeps them alive…while the donations are dwindling …they still function thats while they are very choose in their help…or they will found themselves in this category…yet Vatican is quiet about any investments…but they are doing well…in business investments…the church here in the philippines are existing thru the investments made by them under proxies, free tax and donations by the faithful…they can’t afford to expose themselves to good works for their funds are limited…

    • jenny lim

      The Catholic Church is always there to help even with or without criticism.  But then, those who criticize didn’t see it or choose not to see it.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HKLP2AAOAR42DF6ZSECKTURUOU Egon

       this is the first time you heard because probably, you closed your ears and eyes for the longest time. haven’t you heard about the orphanages and other charitable institutions of the Church? haven’t you heard of what the Church did during the habagat and even Ondoy? And lastly, you will never hear the Church brag about it’s charity deeds is because, it’s how we should help the Christian way. The Church people are not politicians that need acknowledgement for the help they give.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QHGUJ3OJZAOIMBYYWTABNV2EEM Ai

    Sana nga makarating yung mga tulong ng Catholic Church – it’s the first time for a disaster…yung mga previous kasi gaya ng Ondoy ay nabalutan ng controversy…parang napunta ba sa bulsa ng ibang pari. All kind of help is needed now – pero sana magbunga ang panghihikayat na ito..love to see those priests from Cebu last week to be at the disaster area distributing food and consoling their flock. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/276L22SZM5ZUQGV24IL4ZEF6UA Edward

      weh d nga..ikaw rin ano maimbento ka rin ng estorya…bahala kau ikaw rin kasalanan ang magsinungaling at mag akusa at mag imbento ng estorya laban sa kapwa…kasi iyon din ang sukatan kung ano ang nararapat sa iyo sa kabilang buhay…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HKLP2AAOAR42DF6ZSECKTURUOU Egon

       marami sa mga nasalanta ng ondoy sa antipolo, binigyan pa ng pampatayo ng mga nasirang bahay galing sa mga tulong ng mga donasyon sa Simbahang katoliko.Imbes na sumilip sa ginagawa ng iba, tulong na lang. maninira pa eh.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/276L22SZM5ZUQGV24IL4ZEF6UA Edward

    Kung d kau nakakaunawa ito po…
    Mulen, any money the church has is there to make her charitable apostolate outlast empires and dynasties. If the Church sold her possessions, she might make a dent against poverty for a year or two then have to rely on people like you for charity. frightening! Anyone who doesn’t understand what it means being there for the long haul is apparently ignorant of how the church operates.

    I suggest that those of you who are ignorant of the Catholic Church’s history of charity go to the Caritas webpage (Caritas dot org). Please take the time to educate yourselves and understand that the Catholic Church is of ONE HEART for all and always has been.It is the Universal Church bringing God’s love and presence to all without reservation, that is regardless of race, creed, etc. The one and only mission of the Catholic Church is to serve God by serving others. The Church has always been present aiding others, relieving the suffering and consoling the grieving relentlessly and untiringly throughout the world at every moment. Thus, what you see the Church doing in the Philippines now is not exceptional but rather the continuum of its apostolate to help and serve all God’s children with the greatest of love.  Unfortunately, some of you have erroneous notions; I just wanted to clear this up. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all nations, organizations, and peoples who have responded in prayer and action to help the anguished, suffering, devastated people of the Philippines. I am so sorry for them; my heart and prayers are with you.
