EMERGENCY APPEAL: TYPHOON HAIYAN
The Philippines has been hit by a devastating typhoon. It is estimated that over 2,500 people have died and 11 million have been directly affected. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced and many are struggling to find food, clean drinking water and shelter.
More people will die from disease and hunger unless urgently needed supplies are provided.
JM has already set aside £20,000 to help with the response, however much more is needed.
Over the next few weeks and months the Jesuits in the Philippines will be working to help rebuild the lives of those who have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Please help them by making a donation today. Any gift, however small, will be greatly appreciated.
