TYPHOON RELIEF OPERATIONS in Marikina and Quezon City

As typhoon Ketsana ("Ondoy") brought disastrous floods to the nation's capital, ACIM-ASIA was called to conduct relief operations for the victims of the disaster.

A medical team from Gensan was hurriedly prepared and 62 boxes of medicines and medical supplies flown from Gensan to Manila free of charge by the PAL Foundation on October 2. The series of medical missions started on October 3, and is still going on. Additional medicines were purchased by the Society of Saint Pius X in support of the mission.

A charity drive continues to collect relief goods for distribution during the medical mission. On Monday, hopefully, another batch of goods which includes sleeping mats, dinnerwares, clothings and food items will be shipped to the mission area.

The charity of God presses us on.
