Philippines typhoon appeal

Kanlungan, an Alliance of Filipino organisations in the UK and a UK registered charity (and part of the Divided Families Campaign), has a long standing partnership in the Philippines with the Rural Missionaries in the Philippines (RMP)  in relation to relief and rehabilitation work. The RMP is a progressive community development charity organisation which works with local community organisations in the typhoon-affected areas of the Philippines.

If you are able to donate, please go to website:  http://www.kanlungan.org.uk/2013/typhoon-yolanda/ and donate via Paypal link.

You can also send cheques to Kanlungan using the details below. By sending 5 or 10 pounds donation directly to Philippines bank account is expensive and complicated but small amounts could easily be collected via local Paypal set up by UK organisation.
