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:

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. ”
