Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

Typhoon Ketsana - Damage in Baray

The latest information about the damage done on typhoon Ketsana in Baray. The District Officer has put out a call for help, reporting that 135 homes have been flattened by Ketsana. I am not surprised. The homes in many of the villages are pretty rickety wooden and palm leafed structures and it doesn't require much more than a strong wind to blow the roof off.

The damage is of course, nothing compared to what happened in the Philippines, but for the people in Baray who have lost their homes, their plight is nonetheless very real.

I am trying to raise some money to help the villagers affected. It costs approximately USD800 to construct a 4m square structure with a zinc roof.

If you would like to help please let me know.
