Philippine sponsored members keep Texan sponsors in their prayers

We received this message from our CFCA project in Antipolo, Philippines:

“We are thinking at this moment of the people, particularly our sponsors, in Texas. We have seen in the news the huge tornado that hit the state of Texas. We hope and pray our sponsors are safe.

Please know we keep them in our thoughts and prayers for their recovery as we understand how one feels when affected by calamity.

Sincerely,

CFCA Antipolo Family

PHILIPPINES”

How can sponsors get news in times of disaster?

Ask Sponsor ServicesQ. How can sponsors get news in times of disaster?

A. When disasters strike countries where CFCA works, we offer many ways to stay informed.

By visiting the CFCA website, you can view news reports and blog posts compiled using reports from the field, and connect to our Facebook page and Twitter account. These outlets are updated with the latest reports, photos and video we receive from the field.

When disasters occur, the first priority of the local staff is to contact sponsored members to assess damage and identify immediate needs.

As soon as we receive information from the field, CFCA publishes reports on our website, Facebook, Twitter and the CFCA blog. Sometimes, disasters can affect communication lines and it can take longer for CFCA to receive and publish information.

It is not feasible for CFCA to notify individual sponsors on the status of their sponsored friend. CFCA is only able to notify individual sponsors when a sponsored friend dies. CFCA does not publish names of sponsored victims until their sponsors have been notified.
