LOVE IN ACTION – SCHOOL DESIGNATES FUND TO SUPPORT OPERATIONSAFE WORK IN PHILIPPINES

Christian Academy in Japan has designated new donations to the Love in Action fund to go to support OperationSAFE child trauma camps in the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan. CAJ: Donate.

Headmaster Brian Vander Haak writes on his blog, “We know from experience that needs in the Philippines will linger far longer than most aid workers and the swell of donations will subside.”  CAJ students were active from the very first days raising money in support of 2011 tsunami survivors in Japan and then followed up with volunteer teams who went to serve in Tohoku.

Their goal is to raise just over ¥400,000 to sponsor an entire camp of children to receive emotional first aid and trauma intervention in East Samar, one of the most heavily affected Philippine provinces.  Each child can be sponsored for as little as ¥3,800.

OPERATIONSAFE ASSESSMENT TEAM REPORT FROM ZAMBOANGA, PHILIPPINES

Two pastors from the Philippine Children’s Ministry Network travelled last week to the city of Zamboanga in Mindanao where two months previously rebel forces burned portions of the city and up to ten thousand residents had lost their homes.  They were sent to do assessment of needs and find appropriate partners and venues for OperationSAFE child trauma camps, visiting Barangays Santa Barbara, Lustre and Santa Catalina and the evacuation centre called the “Grandstand”.  In the town proper, they interviewed children who were begging and discovered that they were evacuees from Rio Hondo where their homes were destroyed by the recent armed conflict.

Pastor Cesar Lubrico of Tondo Blessed Hope Bible Baptist Church asks for prayers, “Let’s pray that the childrens’ plight for home, food, education, and health are not set aside.” The crisis in Zamboanga has been dwarfed by this month’s typhoon that has affected millions in the Philippines, but the children’s needs still remain.

Interviews with both children and adults leads to the conclusion that their trauma is not over yet.  The appearance of helicopters in the sky, the crash of a heavy falling object, thunder and ambulance sirens all trigger fright and apprehension.

Zamboanga, Mindanao will receive OperationSAFE child trauma camps in December.  Please pray for the children and for those who are ministering to them.

A CRASH initial volunteer team visited one of the severely affected areas (Tenno area) in Kure city, where landslides are continuing and there is still no running water in some areas. After the flood the survivors are also suffering from heat wave - today's temperature was over 35°C (95°F). The Kure Christian volunteer center will begin tomorrow to send volunteers to help the survivors. CRASH Japan is going to support them through volunteer coordination and emotional and spiritual care.

Please keep praying for CRASH and help us by your generous donations. crashjapan.com/en/donate/
