Desde IFMSA-Quebec nos pide compartir esta iniciativa para una colecta por el tifón en Filipinas
URGENT appeal for assistance for the Philippines
8th November 2013 the Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. Second-deadliest typhoon on record. Killed over 4 000 mothers, fathers, grandparents and kids. Our national member organisation AMSA-Philippines was overwhelmed, confronted by loss and abject people. A call for help reached our federation.
We the IFMSA-Quebec have initiated a collection within IFMSA directed to help the millions of victims of the typhon Haiyan/Yolanda. Now more than ever, medical physicians should be ready to respond and help in disasters, whenever and wherever it happens. The privileges of being a health professional come with responsibilities to society (1). Every contribution counts.
We ask you as a humanitarian and future doctor to spread this call for humanity, this appeal of helping people suffering. The donations will unshorten assist AMSA-Philippines work to maintain best possible mental and physical health among the victims of Haiyan.
We would be truly thankful if you could help us by doing following three things:
“As medical students committed to sharing your knowledge and skills internationally,
you are a powerful source of hope for the future.
I commend your determination to use your medical training to benefit all members of society. ”
