Dear Professional Volunteers,

Greetings on Winter Solstice!

The Philippines Typhoon has caused devastating damage and destruction to crops in Eastern Mindanao.  Here is some recent information for your update:

l   More than 6.2 million people have been affected.
l   Over 160,000 houses were damaged.
l   Almost 1,000 people were killed and approximately 800 people are still missing.
l   Approximately 985,000 persons currently sheltered in 63 evacuation centers across 34 provinces.
A Rapid Deployment Team led by Japanese RC has been arriving at Philippine these few days to start the relief operation.

Through the International Red Cross, the Hong Kong Red Cross (HKRC) has mobilized HK$500,000 to provide one month food package  to at least 2,100 families in the worst hit provinces.  Here is an update from HKRC for your details: ... detail.html?id=1417

HKRC keeps close monitoring on the situation and keep you updated if there is deployment need.

In the time of Winter Solstice, we wish you a peaceful and enjoyable time with your family.  And let’s not forget the need of the homeless people in the disaster.  Thank you for your kind attention and support!

Warm regards,
