VFV Alumni Continue to Give Back

Over the past month since Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) we have received an outpouring of generosity and support from individuals and organizations from around the world. We are blown away by the response of so many, and incredibly grateful to receive help during such a difficult time for our entire island. Our communities have been devastated, many lives have been lost in our cities and towns, but our hope for a better future has not been diminished thanks to your support. It is your thoughts, donations, prayers, volunteer hours, fundraising, and relief that helps us survive each week and maintain optimism for the future. We are commited to helping rebuild not only homes, but more importantly lives.

Changing the Face of Canggumbang

Barangay Canggumbang in the rural town of Palo, Leyte has for a long time been an important area of focus for staff and volunteers at Volunteer for the Visayans. Over the years, the small rural barangay has been the recipient of a number of VFV Projects and Programs ranging from volunteer assistance at the local Elementary School to the distribution of school supplies through the Adopt-A-School Project and the provision of social welfare support to a number of children who are lucky enough to have been enrolled on VFV’s Child Sponsorship Program.
