Asia America Initiative to provide emergency relief aid to Mindanao

MINDANAO NEWSAsia America Initiative, a non profit organization based in Washington D.C., United States, is set to visit Mindanao on July 27, 2009. This non-government organization is set to carry out an emergency relief mission to assist more than 90,000 men, women and children who have been displaced by heavy fighting in central Muslim Mindanao.

The mission will be led by AAI president Albert Santoli.

Mindanaoan gives this two thumbs up!

According to a statement posted in the AAI website:

“The evacuees are living in muddy open fields, under heavy rains with minimal plastic tarps to protect them. The temporary encampments have no clean water or sanitation facilities resulting in high incidences of fatal fevers, diarrhea, and viral infections and dehydration. AAI’s Catalyst for Peace, led by AAI coordinator Rohaniza Sumndad, will distribute medicines, re-hydration salt and water purification tablets. At present, AAI receives no government funding. We are appealing for public donations to successfully conduct this mission.”

If you wish to donate, please don’t hesitate to visit the Asia America Initiative official website.

My fellow Mindanaoans who will benefit from this relief mission will definitely be thankful!

AAI banners its slogan: “Peace through education, community building and economic development”

To the AAI team – good luck and God bless you for your efforts to help Mindanao!
