  • Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the central Philippines on November 8, was the deadliest natural disaster in the country’s history, and one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded.

    In its wake, more than 5,000 Filipinos had been killed and many more remain missing. Over a million homes were damaged, leaving residents in the worst-hit areas without proper shelter.
    Funds raised from the benefit concert will support Red Cross relief efforts. These include a field hospital operating at full capacity on the is­land of Leyte, and the distribution of food, clean water, hygiene kits, and other essential aid, both immediately and in the longer term.

    Let us invoke the holiday spirit and come together for our brothers and sisters in the Phil­ippines. Generosity knows no borders. If you cannot attend the event, please consider donat­ing online at www.redcross.ca or by phone at 1-800-418-1111.

    For more information, please contact Amie Peacock at amie2020@gmail. com or 604-367- 4804. The event is also on Facebook at “Make a Joyful Noise: Typhoon Haiyan Benefit Concert.”
