    Do you have any information about the DSWD Home for girls and orphanage that was located in Pawing, Palo. I volunteered there for a few weeks a few years ago. I have just had world that the area was completely destroyed but wondered if the children had been evacuated to higher ground or if they were in the homes at the time the typhoon and storm surge hit. If so do we know if any of them survived?
    Let me know if you can
    It might also be worth providing information on your website on VfV’s other partner organisations if you can. I am sure other former volunteers are interested.

    Dear VFV,


    Would like to check with you that should our company forego gifting our clients with Christmas giveaways this year and instead make humble donations on their behalf, would there be a way to post the names of these client companies, eg. on a visible part of your website or within your building premises or via any other acknowledgment portal, as proof that their generosity reached you?

    Appreciate your kind advice on this matter.

      Hi Rex, Thank you for your comment! We would certainly be grateful for this generosity, and I’m sure VFV would be able to provide some recognition, at least online. Can you send more information to kayla.patterson[at]goabroad.com and I will be sure to put you in touch with the correct VFV staff. Thanks again!

    Dear VFV,

    I sent email about my interest to volunteer in Tacloban this January, email was not delivered to info.vfv@visayans.org. I’m confused as this was the email on the link. Is there a working phone I could call ?

    Appreciate your help,

    • Kayla


      Hi Carmelita,

      Thanks for your message. I will look into the email issue. In the meantime, could you resend your request to elsa.thomasma@goabroad.com and she will be sure to forward to the correct people. Thank you!

    On the 22nd November the School of Law and Social Justice at the University of Liverpool hosted their very own ‘Movember’ day … students and staff paid a donation and wore a fake and false moustache all day!!!!
    We raised £100 which we have just donated to you….
    Good luck and we wish you all the best with everything…
