A 7.1-magnitude earthquake smashed the Cebu province including the central island of Bohol, The Philippines on Tuesday morning, ripping apart bridges, tearing down centuries-old churches and triggering landslides that engulfed entire homes.

 

The number of people confirmed killed on Bohol and neighbouring islands climbed from 93 on Tuesday to 151 on Wednesday night as the full scale of the disaster became clear, and there were no tales of miracle rescues.

 

Our partner has over 800,000 meals ready to deliver to residents of Bohol Island.  Immediate financial support is required to be able to deliver the meals.

Many people are now homeless and shops are closed, so hunger over the coming days and weeks will become a real problem.

 

In the coming days we want to help transport all the food from Manila to Bohol Island and then distribute it to the hardest hit of the 1.2 million residents.

Fifty staff ready to deliver food

 

bohol newsletter012.jpgOur project partner on Bohol Island has over 50 staff and does amazing work helping to transform the lives of thousands of locals every year through the Transform program.

 

They are such an inspiration to us and we know that they are already helping those in need, so we just need to support them at this time through donations to get the shipping and food distribution organised.

 

Your support would be greatly appreciated at this time.

More about the earthquake...

 

bohol newsletter 02.jpg

Cebu province, with a population of more than 2.6 million, is about an hour away by plane from Manila. Neighbouring Bohol, a favourite of tourists because of its sandy beaches, is a short boat ride away from Cebu.

There were reports of aftershocks following the quake.

Nearly 3 million people were affected by the 7.1 magnitude quake on Tuesday, which caused landslides and widespread damage to infrastructure in the tourist destinations of Bohol island and the nearby Cebu islands.

The number of injured rose towards 300, with at least 23 people missing.

The national disaster agency said at least 134 of the dead were on Bohol Island, which took the brunt of the quake. The island is located 630 km (390 miles) south of the capital, Manila.

Officials feared the toll would rise as communications with remote areas were re-established.

Hi All,

Good afternoon, it's been 2 days ago since the 7.2 earthquake strike in our province Bohol, personally I was shaking when it was happened, I am holding my 2 daughters and embracing my son while our house was shaking, but in spite of it, I am so thankful to the Lord for sparing the lives of my family as well as all the ICM staff and family,

bohol newsletter 04.jpgMany people are now homeless and shops are closed, so hunger over the coming days and weeks will become a real problem.

In the coming days we want to help transport all the food from Manila to Bohol Island and then distribute it to the hardest hit of the 1.2 million residents.

 

Seeing all the results of the earthquake, can't help me but cry, it was very devastating, no one was prepared because it was just an ordinary day for all of us.

I noticed people run fro and thro everybody was panic, it seems that it's already the end of the world, most of my neighbors climb to the mountains because some people speculate that tsunami or tidal wave is coming, so everyone go to the higher place bringing their foods and water.

bohol relief newsletter 03.jpgEvery now and then we still experienced after shock, just this morning we experienced another 5.5 earthquake, but I am confident enough that we are all in God's care, so nothing to worry. Just please continue to pray us that Bohol will rise soon.

I was in the command center with other staff bringing the Nutripacks we gave to DSWD, there was plenty of food but I know it is not enough to gave those thousands or millions of Boholano families affected by the earthquake, my heart brakes but overwhelm seeing volunteer from all walks of life packing the foods as a sign that we cares for each other.

The DSWD people headed by Ms. Mita Tecson was so grateful for the food packs we bring to the command center, and Ms. Lala Ruiz executive assistant of Asec Gudmalin was overwhelm for the immediate response we give to their request.

bohol newsletter 02.jpg


Our networks pastor are coming to our office, calling and texting us for help, they need food, water, medicines and blanket, some needs tarpulin or something that they can cover themselves from heat and rain, we already responded almost 30 network pastors with a minimum of 25 household of each pastors and we expect more calls and text are coming before this day ends. we distributed almost 30,000 of food parcels, 408 bottles of water, blankets (donation from shangrilla) as of this time.

bohol newsletter012.jpgOur network pastors are very much overwhelm and grateful with the immediate response we give to their needs, I know going to far areas are much more challenging to do, knowing bridges and roads were being destroy but through our partnership with the bohol provincial government we can reach our hand to them.

Thank you very much for your undying love and support, it is always a blessed to be a blessing to someone, the entire staff of bohol are grateful that our families are ok, because it gives us an opportunity that we can help others beside our families.
