Dear Friends,

Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) left so much devastation in Central Philippines. Around 10 million people were affected in 41 (out of 81) provinces in the Philippines. As of this writing, over 10,000 are feared dead and the death toll may even rise, thousands are still missing and scores of thousand people have been displaced by the strongest typhoon in the world and in the history of the Philippines.

Check out some photos:

Our group, APPEND Inc. is composed of micro-enterprise development organizations, micro-entrepreneurs and farmers in the Philippines. For more than 25 years, APPEND has been involved in poverty reduction using the platforms of micro-enterprise development, community development programs, micro-finance, leadership training, value chain development, education, promotion and practice of social solidarity economy and values transformation program.

We are serving close to three million poor people through our 400 branch offices in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. About 50% of our micro entrepreneurs live in Central Philippines (Visayas Region), which was ravaged by typhoon Yolanda. We have over 53 branch offices operating since 1987 in areas badly hit by Haiyan/Yolanda. 16 staff are reported missing in two of our branches including one branch manager. We do not have full information yet from our other Visayas branch offices and countless number members in most areas where power and communications lines are still down. We have started giving away economic assistance to our people and we're bringing some items like food, medicines, solar lights with phone chargers to affected areas.

We appeal for your prayers for our people especially comfort to those who lost their homes, children, mothers, fathers and immediate relatives. Please also support us in our reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts. You can send your in-kind or cash donations through the following:
