Taal Relief 2020

The Faith Academy Community, Faith Alumni, and First Love International are joining to bring relief to victims of the Taal eruption.

We are partnering with local pastor, Vic Fajardo, whom Outdoor Ed Staff and Students have worked with for several years. His congregation is from the affected Taal area, and are included in the 130,00 people sheltered in evacuation centers.

Locally, we will be collecting goods to distribute in the area. We welcome Faith Academy families to collect goods and bring to the box in front of the High School Office. We will supplement these goods with financial gifts given from around the world. When we deliver the items, church members will also invite friends who do not know about Jesus. We Plan to bring Tagalog Scriptures so spiritual needs can be met alongside physical needs. We will also be needing trucks to deliver the goods.
