    Protecting Typhoon Haiyan victims from becoming victims again


    It has been eight months since Super Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines leaving 4 million people homeless. The main focus has been on providing food and shelter.  Dr. Cyndi Romine, founder of Called to Rescue, wants you to know that victims are most vulnerable to being victimized again, especially after the occurence of a calamity of this magnitude.


    Love Rescues is a crowd funding campaign which aims to raise money to develop tv/radio ads in dialects familiar to Haiyan victims. The ads will depict scenarios that will show how people may be unknowingly aiding a trafficker  (e.g people who help create fake identification and passports, workers at shipping docks turning a blind eye).  It will also educate airport/airline employees, as well as the public, on how to stay vigilant and report any suspicious activity to a hotline number. Let us support this campaign and fight this horrific crime against our women and children. To make a difference, please visit http://phil.am/1fZV8ns

Your PayPal account will be debited at the end of the campaign. Contributions may be tax deductible for US residents. No amount is too small when you are helping save someone from modern day slavery.
