IFI-TFER Operation Sambayanihan is organized to respond to the urgent relief needs of calamity victims. It serves as the Church's emergency relief arm to serve as conduit between donors and calamity victims. It links with partner and concordat Churches, individuals, and organizations local and abroad in order to facilitate relief donations and assistance, and at the same time link with local churches, relief organizations, and local government units in resource generation and delivery of services.
We are glad to share to you the Task Force on Emergency Response (TFER) mid-term report on Typhoon Haiyan. With this report, we would also like to extend our sincere gratitude for your contributions and support on behalf of the survivors of the super typhoon.
The report covers the initiatives that have been undertaken for the period covering December 2013 to June 2014. This partial report gives a picture of the relief distribution operations, medical missions, psychosocial intervention, livelihood assistance and rehabilitation efforts implemented through TFER Bulig Katilingban.
We hope that you find this humble report a worthy piece of document not only because it tells about our partnership, but more because it gives testimony to our cooperation in God’s mission in service to the last and the least among our brothers and sisters.
Thank you so much.
Bishop Joselito T. Cruz
