Hong Wrong’s 500th post takes the form of an appeal… If you have enjoyed this blog over the past couple of years, please send a few bucks to ICM. Whilst International Care Ministries are a faith-based NGO, they are an excellent example of a sustainable, grassroots charity and have been working in poor, rural areas of the Philippines since 1992. They are Hong Kong based and do not prosthelytize. You can donate (by card, cheque or bank transfer) instantly and receive a tax rebate.
Over 10,000 people have died around Tacloban city in the Philippines and the ongoing situation has been described by the Red Cross as ‘absolute bedlam‘. 4.3 million people have been affected.
ICM are in it for the long haul and will be working with the poorest-of-the-poor long after emergency responders disappear.
