Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever recorded to hit land, caused severe devastation in the Philippines. Thousands are now feared dead, hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, and millions have been affected in the aftermath of the storm. This typhoon caused a humanitarian crisis of an immense scale, and with so many in desperate need of help, all of us have to take immediate action.
We at the Oxford Philippines Society are taking part in the global effort to aid those affected by raising funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Philippines Typhoon Appeal. We will be holding a formal dinner at Oriel College on Saturday, 23 November at 7:30 pm, preceded by drinks in the Champneys Room at 7:00 pm. The dinner costs £30, and proceeds will go to the DEC Appeal. If you would like to join us for dinner, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then send you instructions on how to make the payment.
If you cannot attend the dinner, or wish to give more than £30, you can make a donation through the OPS Just Giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/oxfordphilippinestyphoon. Donations made through the site will go directly to the DEC Appeal.
We will also be accepting cash or cheque donations during the dinner, should you prefer these methods.
We thank you in advance for your kind generosity. We would also appreciate your help in spreading the word about this event, as we would like as many people as possible to join us in our fundraising efforts here in Oxford.
With best wishes,
(on behalf of the Oxford Philippines Society)
