Fire Destroys Homes in Malate
We are devastated to report that a fire has torn through homes in Malate. Malate is the district of Manila, Philippines where Bahay Tuluyan is located. A total of about 150 families, or more than 750 people, were made homeless by yesterday’s fires. Many of them are families that Bahay Tuluyan has worked closely with for many years. We urgently want to provide assistance to these families. A second fire broke out in Tondo, affecting another 500 families.
Our incredible team at Bahay Tuluyan are on site and ready to help. For those in Manila, please drop goods to the BT Centre in Manila. For our Australian supporters, we do not need items as they will take too long to get to the Philippines. Please consider making a financial donation directly to our bank account (details below). We will transfer any donations as a matter of urgency to the Philippines.
Donations are tax deductible. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your donation details and identify that it is specifically to support the ‘Malate Fire Appeal’. Thank you for all your help!
