ARTICLES > ANSWERING THE CRY OF THE POOR

From the CFC International Council: Assistance for Vanuatu
As we are all aware, Vanuatu, an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean, was severely damaged by tropical cyclone Pam last March 13. The cyclone packed wind gusts of up to 320 kilometers per hour, and caused widespread damage to 90% of the buildings in the capital Port Vila, in the island of Efate. Communication lines have also been disrupted, such that information on the full extent of the damage, including loss of lives, is difficult to gather.

The suffering of the people of Vanuatu bears similarities to the suffering inflicted by super typhoon Yolanda on our countrymen in the Visayas regions. The concern shown by the international community, through the massive outpouring of aid, was highlighted further by the visit of Pope Francis to Leyte, where he expounded fully on the twin virtues of mercy and compassion that we should all aspire to live out.

Taking the mandate to Love More that the Lord has given us this year, we are now called to pay it forward and show Vanuatu how much they are in our hearts and prayers at this time.

The International Council therefore enjoins everyone in the CFC global community to reach deep into our pockets to help our brethren in Vanuatu get back on their feet.

Donations coming from the Philippines may be deposited to either of the following accounts:
  • Account Name: Couples for Christ Global Mission Foundation Inc.
    BDO Ortigas Branch SA # 6810020704 (Swift Code BNORPHMM)
  • Account Name: Couples for Christ Global Mission Foundation Inc.
    BPI Aurora Branch CA #0123-4662-76 (Swift Code BOPIPHMM)
(Note: The Swift codes will only be used in case of donations coming from abroad. Also, in case donations of foreign currencies are sent to these accounts, these will be converted to pesos inasmuch as these are peso accounts.)

Donations from the international community may be sent directly to CFC Australia, which administers the CFC community in Vanuatu, through the following account:
  • Couples for Christ (Australia) Oceania Mission Ltd.
    Commonwealth Bank of Australia
    062-021 (BSB No.)
    10498992 (Account No.)

Thank you for your generosity and may God bless the people of Vanuatu. We also ask for God's blessings on all of us.
