Start 2014 right by helping us rebuild Tacloban.

Women in Solidarity: REBUILD Tacloban Philippines for Filipina Women & Girls (after Typhoon Yolanda) - Jan. 23, 2014 @ Credo

Please join FWN at a fundraising reception to help REBUILD Tacloban Philippines hosted by Bay Area Women's Groups in Solidarity with Filipina Women and Girls.

We need your help to get their jobs back as businesses have been severely damaged and we have to find a way for these families to have a source of income. Our hearts go out to the Women of Candahug, the "Village of Widows" - the husbands, fathers, and sons stayed behind while the women and children escaped to higher group when Typhoon Haiyan swooped in at 200mph, surging the waves as high as 16 ft.

Your contribution and 100% of proceeds will support the long-term rebuilding efforts through the help of Feed the Hungry Philippines - their volunteers and staff are now on-the-ground doing relief work.

RSVP Now! -  https://WomenForTacloban.eventbrite.com

Overseas Pinoys in 2013: Tensions, tragedies, and a scandal
With more than 10% of the Philippine population overseas, each year is bound to have good and bad or happy and sad stories about them. 2013 was no exception.
