I see that you are in California asking how to donate to the Philippines.


Rather than spend resources - time, people and money - coordinating with the government on how incoming shipments can be received and then working out the logistics of how those received items can be stored, sorted and transported to various locations, etc etc etc. 


We have found it easier to make donations to the world wide work and then the monies and the local resources can be used more wisely. In other words - instead of getting 10,000 pairs of jeans, when they really need 10,000 jackets - as an example. Just donate to the world wide work and and the best use of your donation WILL be made.


Interestingly - this VERY week - we are having a part on this subject at our service meetings "How We Can Help to Meet the Needs of Others. Talk by an elder based on the November 15, 2013, Watchtower, pages 8-9." http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2013843

Good news just got off Skype with our son in Cebu he told us that 3 trucks are heading into the worst hit area with supply's from the Branch in Manila. The Airport in Cebu is being used for a hub for brining in supply's and the brothers are giving everything they can spare and it is being collected at the Kingdom Hall in Cebu and surrounding KH to be distributed to those hardest hit .

What a beautiful thing we have in our " brotherhood

We can see by this information that the Witnesses in the Philippines are very organized to care for the brothers and sisters! Our organization prepares ahead of time for possible disasters..we know and believe Bible prophecy, whereas the churches are in spiritual darkness. They

can't even explain to their members "why bad things happen"!

We can leave everything in Jehovah's care and follow the direction of the FDS..

What a wonderful Organization we are. a part of!!!
