The Philippines: church focusing on long term recovery

Anglican Communion News Service reports that the Anglican Communion and its member churches are planning for long term recovery as well as immediate needs:

Anglicans are responding generously to help people hit by typhoon Haiyan and are planning long term support to help communities in the Philippines rebuild for the future.

Speaking from the frontline of supporting devastated communities, Floyd Lalwet, provincial secretary of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, said that as part of the emergency response, Anglicans at the national cathedral had been packing food parcels to distribute to displaced people.

You can give to the emergency appeals launched byAnglican Board of Mission, Anglican Overseas Aid,Episcopal Relief and Development, Primates World Relief and Development Fund, and Us.

Once the emergency phase is over, Floyd Lalwet said that the Church is focusing its attention on longer term rebuilding.

“The Church is one of the few agencies left after the emergency. Lots of agencies are going home already,” he said.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
