Donate To Philippines Typhoon Survivors
On October 15th 2013 a 7.2 earthquake devastated the island of Bohol, Cebu and surrounding communities were reduced to rubble.
November 8, 2013 Typhoon Haiyan aka, Yolanda, the deadliest storm to ever make landfall in human history, destroyed the Central Philippines. Yolanda’s winds of 235 kmh, gusts reaching 275 kmh, 15.75 inches of rain, waves surging as high as 15 meters (45 ft.), has claimed the lives of at least 10,000 people, more fatalities have still not been counted.
Bumi Sehat with a WADAH team on the ground, is organizing now, to bring relief to the hardest hit areas. Nutritious protein rich food is needed NOW, as the survivors are starving. Essential medicines are also needed, NOW. When pregnant women cease to have food, water and shelter, their BP rises, and babies come prematurely or are stillborn. Risks of eclampsia, claiming the lives of mothers, increases. The only way to prevent this is to feed and care for them.
Team Bumi Sehat was an early responder to the Tsunami in Aceh, and earthquakes in Jogja, Padang & Haiti. This is not our first Rodeo. Disaster relief focusing on Mother & Child Health is what we do best. First, we must help to organize food and shelter.
Yes, Ibu Robin Lim is Filipino, and she is going Home to deliver relief. Bumi Sehat/ WADHA/Ibu Robin’s critical efforts now are focused on bringing easy to distribute food (nutritious and need not be cooked, hygienically packaged ie protein bars, etc), and essential medicines and supplies. Dr. Laura Sachel is sending us a “Solar Suitcase”. Our partners on the ground are already feeding people, since the earthquake.
