Funds Received in the Philippines

The money all you generous people donated has arrived in the Philippines. Every single penny ($265 US Dollars / 11,500 Philippine Pesos). My host brother, Res, used it to purchase school supplies for students in Eastern Samar. He is sending me photos from his trip, and I will post them here as soon as I receive them. More donations came after his trip, and that money will be sent as well in the next few days.

I would like to thank all the donors again for their faith and generosity. It is wonderful to see people helping communities affected by Typhoon Haiyan as the media attention fades away. The road to recovery is long and hard, but these donations make all the difference.
