A LETTER FROM NWU MEMBER NINOTCHKA ROSCA ON PHILIPPINE DISASTER RELIEF

Sisters and Brothers: 
My country of origin, the Philippines, was struck by a super-typhoon that practically decimated 42 areas, killed more than 7,000 people by last count and rendered nearly a million people homeless. My organization and I have been working day and night to gather anything that can provide a measure of relief. The post-disaster picture is not good. In one village, all the men-folk were killed after the women and children were evacuated. With the high rate of unemployment for women, this has left many vulnerable to sex and labor trafficking.
