SG$3,421.00raised of SG$2,700.00 goal goal
We are helping our close friends, Gemma & Emma, to raise emergency funds to buy sacks of rice for their poor families, relatives and an orphanage. There are in total 30 households.
Gemma and Emma are Filipinos currently living & working in Singapore. Their hometowns in Bohol & Cebu have been devastated by Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) and their poor families back home are in urgent need of basic necessities this Christmas & New Year.
We estimate that for every SGD $800/- raised, they can buy 10 50kg-rice sacks to sustain 30 households for 10 days. We hope to support them for at least a month.
All the funding here (after deduction of platform fee 4% , card processing fee 2.9% and $0.30 per paypal transaction) will be sent directly via GCash to their immediate family member who will purchase the rice and distribute it to their families, relatives and the orphanage. We will keep you posted with images we receive of their rice purchase & distribution.
This Christmas season has indeed given us an opportunity to be part of something greater! Any amount goes a long way for them. Even if you are not able to donate, your prayers, mass intentions, rosaries offered for all the victims will be greatly appreciated.
Should you require more information, please do email/contact us at [email protected]
Wishing you and your family love, joy and peace this Christmas & New Year. Thank you for your help!
