SUPPORT FOR PHILIPPINES CATHOLIC SCOUTING

Filed under: Next Events |

By now, we are All well to familiar with the devastation that was caused by Typhoon Haiyan on 8 November 2013. As the storm crashed head-on into the Philippines that day, more than 3.9 million people were forced to evacuate from their homes. More than 6000 lives were lost and there are still 1800 missing, many of them children.

Catholic Churches were destroyed, but the faith of the people remains strong. This was clearly evident when ICCS World President Roberto Cociancich and I visited the Philippines last year. Catholic Scouting continues to grow in some of the most depressed areas of the country. Thanks to the leadership of the Philippines Catholic Committee, the Philippines Scout Association and their belief in Jesus Christ has Catholic Scouting been a source of youth ministry for thousands of young people.

ICCS has been in contact with the Catholic Scout Association asking how ICCS members and Catholic Scouts around the world can help in this desperate time of need. The best way for us to provide support is to assist with the purchase of new Scout uniforms as many of the youth had to flee their homes and lost everything that had. The cost of the uniform is $45.00 US Dollars and donations can be made directly to ICCS in the following manner:
