During the Lenten Period we usually abstain from certain foods, habits, or physical pleasures. Some vow to give up bad habits such as smoking or cursing while others abstain from chocolate or shopping.
From these things that you give up, maybe you will be able to save at least P40/day or a little less than $1. At the end of the Lenten season that is a minimum of P1,600 that can be used as a lifeline by our brothers and sisters in times of life-threatening emergencies and crises.
The funds raised from your Lentern sacrifice will help our Damayan Program. Caritas Damayan provides emergency relief assistance to victims of disasters/ Calamities such as typhoons, earthquake, landslide, floods and volcanic eruption etc. Right now, we are raising funds to help the evacuees in Albay area due to the Mayon eruption; and the continous rehabilitation efforts in Marawi.
For our brothers and sisters around the world you can donate $40 in 40 days or $1 / day instead.
Thank you very much and GOD Bless.
