In October 2019, the island of Mindanao suffered from 3 succeeding strong earthquakes: the first with magnitude 6.3 on October 16, the second with magnitude 6.6 on October 29, and the latest, just two days after on October 31, with magnitude 6.5.
Ofelia was one of the over 8000 people who got hit really hard. Her house was permanently destroyed and her family forced to move into tents. Even though Ofelia takes the disaster very well, we know how much her house meant to her and how many memories connected her with it.
At the same time, it will be a major financial undertaking to rebuild her house back to how it was. As Ofelia is like family for us, we have decided to support her in this endeavour, and we hope you will too !!
Thank you so much,
Teresa, Nick, Pauline and Levi
