Helping Traditions is continuing to network with indigenous (non-Western) Philippine ministries in the hardest hit areas. We have teams standing by ready to purchase food and supplies and bring them to the hardest hit areas and begin the process of rebuilding people’s lives. They will remain on the ground in these areas working with local churches and ministries long after Western aid is gone, and the Western news agencies no longer cover this tragedy.

Right now, our team is preparing to go to Ilo ilo this week (11/181/2013) to purchase food and begin repacking it, and then transporting it to the areas of greatest need. We also continue to work with ministries in Samar and Palawan, which were also hard hit and where people are homeless. We are also working with a local ministry in Leyte, and hope to have more updates later this week. We appreciate everyone’s support! Please continue contributing here.
