Black Santa Appeal sends donation to the Philippines

Tuesday November 12th 2013

The annual Black Santa Appeal run by St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, is sending £5,000 to aid agencies working with all those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. 

The Appeal gratefully receives occasional donations throughout the year as well as in the run–up to Christmas and so is in a position to respond to crisis situations such as the horror the typhoon has left in its wake.

The Dean of Belfast, The Very Rev John Mann, said: “We have been moved and deeply saddened to hear of the huge loss of life and of the suffering to so many brought about by Typhoon Haiyan.

“While our prayers are with all those who have been affected by the disaster we hope that this donation will help at least in some small measure in the practical relief directed to the most vulnerable and will show the solidarity of the people of Northern Ireland with the people of the Philippines.”
