    Hullexile's Annual Christmas Appeal

    This is the 11th year Geoexpat has supported the Christmas Charity Appeal organised and run by Mrs Hullexile.

    Every cent goes to the poor, all personally vetted by Mrs Hullexile to ensure all are really in need. The focus has over the years been on the Aeta indigenous children, orphanages, street children and the poor.

    The photos give just a glimpse of the work done.

    You can also send a PM directly to hullexile for more info if you want, but he is currently hooked up to an oxygen tank. He will do his best to respond.

    PM HULL - https://geoexpat.com/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=14326

    If you wish to donate we have two options - one through a trusted friend of hullexile and another through Western Union.

    I am happy to provide you with the information needed. It is the same as the information provided when we had asked for assistance to fund some medication.

    PM me - https://geoexpat.com/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=2



    Every little bit help!

    Not bad, appeal posted yesterday, money transferred from UK this morning, first food delivery this lunchtime.

    The photo is dark because no electric (or windows or running water or space to sleep. You can see their entire house). Rice, eggs, fruit, tinned foods and biscuits for the kids as a treat.

    Food deliveries suspended while the typhoon hits us. Pissing it down.

    Starting up again after the typhoon with the family packing food parcels.

    A couple of people messaged me about donating. Can you reply to confirm the "Shri route" is OK or do you need an alternative?

    Geoexpats please donate, you make so many people happy.

    More packing.

    We are flexible in the best way to help whoever needs help. So we were contacted by a family in desperate need because of the typhoon who live in the mountains around Mount Pinatubo. Too remote for us to get to so a friend sent money by gcash to a store nearer them and they can buy their own food and essentials.

    Presents under the Christmas tree, or as usual in our case food relief packs. Or at least some of the ones ready for distribution.

    To put this into context, each pack costs up to USD10. That is about 10 days minimum pension or 4 days welfare payment for a family with no or very little income..

    Some people ask why doesn't the government do more, yet in the UK with the NHS and a welfare system 1000 times bigger than in the Philippines there is still a big demand at the many food banks.
