Help the people of the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan – Saturday, 11 July 2015

Typhoon Hayan

Dear Members and friends,

Deputy Grand Master RWBro Jamie Melville (GMElect) seeks your support for a charity group known as The Australian Masonic Friends of The Philippines (AMFOP), who has been moved by the devastating effect of the typhoon Haiyan in Bantayan Island, province of Cebu, The Philippines.

People on the region have been devastatingly impacted by the typhoon Haiyan in 2013 and again in 2014, before they had a chance to stand and rebuild their lives.

Unfortunately, with so much happening in the world of today, once the media coverage and exposure have moved on, the people of Bantayan Island and Cebu have been forgotten.

For the first beneficiary of the association, they have chosen the people of Bantayan Island and the province of Cebu, to help rebuild the victims’ lives directly and indirectly.

The first mission delivery was successfully accepted by the Governor of Cebu, Governor Hilario P. Davide III.  AMFOP were able to donate equipment which includes a portable mechanical ventilator, amalgamator and light cure machine. The replacement value of the ventilator is $55,000 in Australia, while the amalgamator and light cure machine are estimated to cost $7000 and $2000, respectively.

Since then, AMFOP, along with the support of NSW Masonic lodges, have also donated 15 boats for the local fishermen, which enable them to work again and provide for their families.

They currently have a container full of medical equipment, school chairs, and desks, as well as books, set to sail, awaiting freight funding and sponsors.

To support AMFOP goal’s, we are holding a Casino Royale Charity Dinner, which is our inaugural fundraising event, on Saturday, 11th July 2015, at 7pm. Tickets are $75 per person.  The highlights of the evening are fine dining, dancing, live performance, Art auction and raffles.
