Recently, Foundation 4Life made a donation of $30,000 USD to support relief efforts for those affected by the Bohol earthquake and typhoon Yolanda. “The Filipino people still have many critical needs,” said 4Life Service Director Tracie Kay. “As members of the 4Life family, I am grateful to everyone who has reached out to support this cause.”

Super typhoon yolanda (a.k.a haiyan) has been named one of the strongest recorded storms in world history causing the displacement of millions of people. Few weeks earlier, the visayas region, particularly in the island of Bohol was struck with a massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake, causing heavy damage to properties and even some of the famous century-old structures. Foundation 4Life divided the donation between Feed The Children and the local 4Life office to support on-the-ground efforts and immediate needs. 4Life distributors also helped by bringing in cash and in-kind donations while some also volunteered to pack these goods for the victims of the recent calamities.
Feed The Children is using $20,000 USD to set up mobile kitchens across the provinces of Cebu, Leyte, Samar, Iloilo, and Capiz, and $10,000 USD was sent to the local 4Life office to prepare several hundred relief kits. Foundation 4Life remains in close communication with the 4Life Philippines office in Manila to assess ongoing needs.
