Fund Raising Campaign

Agape Foundation Inc. is a non- profit organization and orphanage. AFI was established on March 17, 1995 headed by late Pastor James Carlos, a Filipino- American missionary who aimed to help the Filipino children in the depressed area in Metro Manila. Presently, the mission work of late Pastor James Carlos continues through the effort of different volunteer pastors and workers from different Christian denomination. Last year, AFI acquired a 1, 000 square meter lot through the donation of a Korean missionary. This year, AFI is launching their fund raising campaign for the construction of new building. The total estimated cost of 3 storey building is P5, 500, 000.00 ($100,000.00). AFI is asking for your prayer and financial support to make this vision come true. Your prayer and financial support will be a big help to those children who need care, love and education. Thanks you so much and God bless you.

Please help us to reach our target amount $100.000.00 (Php 5, 500.000.00 pesos)

South Asia Tragedy

40,000 feared dead in huge South Asia Quake




BALAKOT, Pakistan (AFP) — Rescuers were Monday struggling to reach cold and traumatized earthquake survivors cut off in the mountains of northeast Pakistan, as the authorities warned the death toll could reach 40,000.


The roads leading into Pakistan-controlled Kashmir — the area worst affected by Saturday’s 7.6 magnitude quake — were blocked by landslides. Power and water supplies were down, hospitals and schools destroyed.

A senior official said the quake had killed between 30,000 and 40,000 people in Pakistan, and injured another 60,000. The official toll remained at 19,000 but military spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan said it would rise.

"It is a whole generation that has been lost in the worst affected areas. The maximum number affected was schoolchildren,’’ Sultan told AFP, saying the hardest hit area was around the Pakistani Kashmir capital of Muzaffarabad.

Offers of aid began pouring in from around the world. The United States said it had provided $50 million, the World Bank offered $20 million and the Asian Development Bank pledged $10 million.

In many places people dug with their bare hands in an often futile attempt to reach friends and relatives trapped in the rubble, and anger started to build as help failed to arrive.

‘’We survived the earthquake but now we realize we will die of hunger and cold,’’ said Mohammad Zaheer, resident of the shattered town of Balakot.

As survivors waited they faced an array of problems — freezing overnight temperatures, rain, landslides, scarce food, little shelter, no communications networks and almost non-existent healthcare.

The United Nations said more helicopters were needed urgently to bring aid to the hardest-hit villages, most of which are nestled on hard-to-reach forested slopes in the foothills of the Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain ranges.

‘’People don’t have tools or anything. It’s such a disaster,’’ said Jan-Peter Stellema, who works for Medecins sans Frontieres in the village of Lamnian.

‘’Bringing aid by road is not possible. By donkey or by mule might be possible, but air operations are definitely necessary,’’ he told the BBC.

Jan Egeland, UN coordinator of humanitarian affairs and emergency relief, said Pakistan had deployed its own substantial fleet of helicopters but the scale of the disaster required more choppers and small fixed-wing aircraft.

The United States responded by offering eight military helicopters — five twin-rotor Chinooks and three Blackhawks based in neighboring Afghanistan — and two C-130 aircraft loaded with tents, blankets and other relief supplies.

Afghanistan also said it would send four military helicopters, medical teams and three tons of medicine.

The earthquake struck as schools were beginning classes, and hundreds if not thousands of children are feared to have died when buildings collapsed or were engulfed by landslides.

International rescue teams with sniffer dogs and specialist equipment have begun arriving in Pakistan and setting up field hospitals to cope with the tens of thousands of people injured.

Aid teams from Britain and Turkey were headed to Muzaffarabad while teams from Japan, China, Iran and the United Arab Emirates will be sent to Balakot, Batagram and other parts of Mansehra, said the Pakistani military.

The earthquake also struck the Indian-held zone of Kashmir with officials there saying 750 people were confirmed dead and another 2,500 injured. They also warned many remote villages had yet to be reached and the death toll would likely rise.

Meanwhile, the Philippine government will send a humanitarian team to extend relief assistance for the earthquake victims in Pakistan, Malacañang said yesterday.

Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye said the deployment of the medical teams is the country’s way of showing sympathy with the thousands of victims of the massive earthquake which struck South Asia on Saturday.

Bunye offered anew the country’s condolences to the earthquake-battered nations in South Asia, adding Filipinos shared the grief and pain of the victims. He said the country is praying for the speedy recovery of the quake victims from the unfortunate event.

The Action for Dynamic Development (ADD) Movement, a socio-civic organization composed of Muslim and Christian members, said it would spearhead relief operations to help the earthquake victims in Pakistan.

"It is now the time that we should express our love into action to the families whose loved ones perished in this disaster," ADD president Bato Camid said. (with a report by Genalyn Kabiling)
