A huge thank you goes out to Ooberfuse, who organised a charity concert in Kensington to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Last Saturday, 30 November, electronic music project Ooberfuse held a fundraising concert to support CAFOD and the other members of the Disasters Emergencies Committee (DEC) as they work to help people affected by the recent disaster in the Philippines. CAFOD Westminster youth volunteer Anthuanette Hidalgo was at the event to thank the band and everyone who attended for their great contribution to CAFOD’s Philippines appeal. She said:
“It seems like the devastation was overwhelming, but so has been the response of the Catholic community here. So many people have been asking, ‘What can I do? How can I help?’ People have organised collections in their parishes, schools, and workplaces and have been incredibly generous. CAFOD is helping turn this generous support into a real difference in the Philippines. We are standing alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ today to help them to recover, and will continue to stand alongside them until they are able to live life to the full.”
Thanks again to Ooberfuse for their great work organising the event and to everyone who attended for their support. Ooberfuse have recorded a song of support for the people affected by the crisis which you can listen to at http://soundcloud.com/ooberfuse/oh-holy-night, and are working on a video to accompany it in the near future.If you would like to donate to support CAFOD’s work helping the people affected by the worst typhoon in recorded history, visit the CAFOD Philippines appeal webpage, or go to CAFOD’s emergencies news page for the most up to date information on what we are doing to respond to this crisis.
