Please help the survivors of SuperTyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The numbers are overwhelming!
Help means massive and systematic emergency disaster response. Our disaster preparation training identifies at least 14 aspects needed for effective response:
- survivor camp coordination and management
- early recovery
- emergency shelter
- emergency telecommunications
- food security and agriculture
- child care
- gender-based violence
- water sanitation and hygiene
We need all these things. We appeal to our global community to help promptly and generously! Choose the organization that you trust most. But donate quickly!
Help means respecting our people, especially the survivors of Haiyan.
- We’re real people, not just numbers or statistics.
- Understand our culture even in times of desperate need.
- Listen to our stories.
- Affirm our strength.
- Assist in our weaknesses.
- Respect our land and national dignity.
- Respect our holy places.
As a Christian organization, PeaceBuilders Community commits to the following:
A SOLIDARITY IN TIMES OF DISASTERS
God is making all things new and has called the Church to love expressed through unity of purpose and action.
Disasters expose the vulnerability of creation and the systemic injustices that remain in the world. We recognize the desperate need for the transforming work of God’s Church.
In recognition that the Church is called to reflect the character of Christ by engaging in transforming mission and faithful presence, we commit:
:: To a SOLIDARITY OF PURPOSE that demonstrates the character of the Church by collaborating intentionally with each other in integrity, humility, and goodwill, recognizing the dignity and inherent value of all;
:: To a SOLIDARITY OF PROCESS by advancing complete and transparent good practices of disaster management, including the wise and ethical stewardship of personal, corporate, and financial resources;
:: To SOLIDARITY OF CONSEQUENCE by holding ourselves, our community, our leaders, and our governments accountable before God and one another;
:: To a SOLIDARITY OF PASSION as advocates for justice, equality, dignity, and the transformation of persons, communities, and society;
SO AS TO MAKE MANIFEST GOD’S SHALOM.
