Typhoon Relief Efforts for Victims in the Philippines


Super Typhoon Haiyan - one of the strongest storms in recorded history - smashed into the Philippines last Friday, killing thousands and leaving millions more displaced. 

Sonoma resident, Dulce Silvi, who was born and raised in Manila, Philippines, and her husband, Greg, have setup their home as a drop-off center for relief goods which will be sent directly to Tacloban City, the hardest hit area by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Dulce's cousin, Earl Viernes, is the director of surgery at Bethany Hospital in Tacloban City, and he will be the Philippine contact and conduit for the relief items from the community of Sonoma. 

Food is needed most. The Silvis are asking for rice, canned sardines, canned tuna and canned soup, which can be easily packed in boxes and shipped. 

Please bring all donations-in-kind to 18496 Happy Lane, Sonoma, CA. For further information, please e-mail Dulce Silvi at dulceasilvi@gmail.com, or call Greg and Dulce Silvi at (707) 933-8223.
