Pictures from the Redemptorist Church in Tacloban
The images that have emerged from the Philippines over the last number of days are most distressing. Officials estimate up to 10,000 people have died in Tacloban alone. Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced. The Redemptorists in Tacloban are now caring for thousands of people. Two thousand of these people are now homeless and are sheltering in the Redemptorist church and monastery. A further several hundred people are coming to the church each day to receive emergency assistance.
As a Province we have had a lot of contact with Tacloban and its surrounding areas for many years; several Irish Redemptorists have ministered there.
The Redemptorists and our partners SERVE are implementing a relief effort to support the devastated families of Tacloban. To contribute to the relief effort click on one of the below options:
Our prayers and thoughts are with the residents of Tacloban and their families at this time of extreme difficulty. Thank you for your solidarity with them in your prayer and generous financial contribution.
