St Joseph Parish Canlaon
We cannot control and predict the unforeseen occurrence of calamities that cause havoc and harm to many people, especially to those who live in the streets, the disabled, and the poorest of the poor. Calamities bring damage – emotionally, mentally, and physically – and if they are recurring frequently, they can put a strain on people’s lives.
It is a sudden event that causes great extents of damage, multiple deaths, and suffering to many people. We cannot stop it, but we can help by providing relief goods during these uncertain times. We become “the light of the world”; the light that shines in the life of the least, lost and last.
