Help a wonderful Tacloban Family rebuild their lives

Venessa Mendano, our amazing caregiver, friend and 'extended family member', was visiting her family for five weeks in Tacloban when Typhoon Hayian hit. Thankfully her and her family survived, but their home where her nine year old son, husband, mother, two sisters and one brother live was completely destroyed along with all of their personal belongings. The Mendano's now need our help to overcome this horrible tragedy and rebuild their lives. Your donation will go towards helping a truly wonderful family and individual.

Venessa fulfilled a dream when she came to Canada a year and a half ago through the Canadian Live-In Caregiver program. Her primary driver and goal is to provide a better life for her immediate and extended family in the Philippines. Venessa is one of the most caring, kind and positive people I have ever met. She has become part of our family, and enriches the lives of everyone around her whether it is our daughter, a neighbour, or one of her many friends. I am continually amazed with her perseverance and dedication. Let's help her and her family overcome this tragedy!
