Appeal from FWCC-Asia West Pacific Section for Filipino Friends
Dear Friends around the world, in 2009, catastrophic flooding took the lives of many Filipinos, especially in Manila, destroyed homes, and the Pasig Friends Church had to be largely rebuilt and it and the pastor’s home was swamped with walls of mud. Your generosity then was magnificent. The flooding this time is less severe, lessons having been learnt from 2009. Pastor Cris de la Cruz has sent photos and a description of the damage this time to Pasig Church.
The Friends there again have to commit to some rebuilding and improvements- and possibly there could be repeats of the flooding in future years. The AWPS Treasurer Taisoo Kim Watson writes:
Anyone can put money in Westpac bank.

They must state that it is for Filipino FRIENDS.
When we have received certain amount, I will arrange the transfer the money to their designated bank account.
However, for Friends in The Americas, EMES and those will financial links with the World Office, there would be fewer bank charges if you sent your donations direct to the accounts there. When certain amounts have accrued, they can be transferred to AWPS in one transaction.
With love and prayers to you all,
