Caritas Philippines issues appeal for emergency aid for typhoon victims

At least 10 dioceses were ravaged by the typhoon, said a report by Caritas Philippines

Caritas Philippines has launched an appeal to help communities devastated by super typhoon Odette (international name: Rai) that claimed at least 80 lives.

Father Antonio Labiao, Caritas’ executive secretary, said many dioceses in the Visayas and Mindanao regions were “devastated” by the typhoon.

“They need shelter materials, food, water and medicines urgently. That is why we are appealing for your help,” Father Labiao said.




At least 10 dioceses were ravaged by the typhoon, said a report by Caritas Philippines.

The initial report indicated that the Cebu archdiocese and the dioceses of Tagbilaran, Maasin, and Surigao are considered “severely damaged” by the typhoon.

“We are sending this appeal to everyone. As we prepare for Christmas, let us not forget the Filipino families, especially children, who were affected by typhoon Odette,” said Father Labiao.

“Let us celebrate the birth of Christ through our kindness, compassion and generosity,” he added.

Several dioceses held a second collection during Sunday Masses to augment the Church’s emergency response.

Aside from sending assistance, Caritas Philippines will also be helping dioceses conduct rapid assessments.
