Virlanie Update on Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda)

Dear Friends,




With the outpour of messages we’ve been receiving from associations and individuals who expressed support for the recent calamity brought about by the Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), we are deeply grateful to be reminded how much love people have for Virlanie and for the Philippines.


We are blessed that the Foundation is intact and unaffected as most of our operations are in Metro Manila. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the communities of the beneficiaries under our programs in the provinces. Those in Leyte, Samar, among other areas remain in their shattered homes or evacuation centers with little to no food or water resource. The communications and electricity for most of Visayas is still limited, so we are yet to determine the extent of help needed and how they can be realistically provided. In the coming weeks, once transportation becomes available and the tension has mostly settled, we will be sending a team to assess the situation.


For now, we are exploring how we can initiate the SHORT AND LONG TERM support to our affected families and the people in the calamity areas.


And since emergency relief operations are already ongoing, we are instead considering to provide psychosocial debriefing to the affected children and families and have a closer look on the situation to determine the most practical and feasible scope and intervention needed thereafter.


Therefore, we will gladly welcome monetary donations to initiate and eventually sustain the noted plan for the affected children and families of the typhoon victims.


We thank you for your unwavering support to these causes and rest assured that Virlanie will develop a reasonable support program for those affected while we continue to bring smiles to our children here in Manila.


God bless the Philippines!


With much hope,


Dominique Lemay

President and Founder of Virlanie Foundation
