Thank you and May God bless you Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance for your immediate and wholehearted response to us here in the Philippines, devastated by the super typhoon "YOLANDA) specifically here in Western Visayas. You can see the horrible pictures of wreckages of buildings taken by CNN and other reports. The damages in Western Visayas is not very well publicized as the focus is in the eastern part where there are thousands of casualties but the destruction of buildings and crops are more or less the same. We sent appeal for assistance for our six schools and assistance for our sisters families whose homes are flattened by the typhoon. I have listed 20 of our sisters homes and it is still adding as communication is slow to arrive as there are no electricity and signals in the affected part of Northern Iloilo, Capiz antique, and aklan.
With your initial financial assistance we were able to respond to the people's need for food, clothing and shelter even just with the use of light materials like bamboo and nipa leaves for roofing. As of now, there are still many families asking for help to rebuild their homes. Foreign aids don't reach here as their concentration are in Tacloban, Leyte, Samar, Cebu, etc. Our4 convents and schools have no roofs. Its raining here. Our teachers and students are asking for help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

appeal to kindhearted people to help this organization in their selfless dedication of helping the poor.

my dream in life is to finish my studies, so that i could get out from poverty, and so i currently enrolled at the DOMINICAN COLLEGE OF ILOILO - along the way in my studies there were times that i thought i could not finish even this first semester because i could hardly find money for my tuition fee. I was informed that there is a grant of tuition fee aid available at the office of the VP for Academics and so i applied, thanks be to God I am accepted - MARY QUEEN OF ALL NATIONS MISSIONARY ALLIANCE i am very thankful for your generosity that i am one of its recipient. May you be blessed with more donors so that you can continue to help those people who are in need

For the last 3 years I've been increasingly impressed with the time given by volunteers for Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance. Each sees the fruits of its effort in helping the poor. The Board reviews all proposals and dispenses 100% of the donations it receives to the people/projects that can most benefit from being given a hand up. The support given goes to helping people rise up given some assistance.

The many success stories are testimony that MQAN's approach is an effective way of stretching donor
contributions.

Neither the Board, Officers, nor volunteers take and salaries and they have absorbed all expenses over
the past 30 years. This has led to the 100% distribution of all donations.

May current and future donors continue to share their generosity knowing that their hard earned money is being spent optimally in making a difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the message out as to how effective this model is to helping thousands who will lift themselves up with a little help.

Two years ago, I started attending monthly meetings of this small group of volunteers. I've been increasingly impressed with the care and attention it gives in evaluating the needs that come to its attention usually through missionaries in countries such as The Philippines, India, & Africa. I've been equally impressed with the rigor The Alliance applies to the best use of every dollar that it receives from donors.

100% of the funds are distributed to the neediest people Over the last 28 years, many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been converted to the foreign currency & distributed to the neediest as outlined by the on-sight missionaries. Funding is often accomplished by giving a hand up rather than a hand out. For example, goats, cows, fruit trees, fishing equipment, sewing machines have fostered self-sustaining growth in villages, pride of accomplishment & independence.

I've been recently recognized as a Board member and know that the limited funds have left many
needs unmet. By certifying the value of this registered non-profit as a worthwhile charity, I hope that others might share in its mission. Donations, prayers, contacts, volunteer time, and suggestions are invited. Talent to help develop a web site would be most welcome at this time.

The rewards of participation are great in knowing that you can magnify your impact by helping the most amount of needy people and with 100% of your dollars being optimized and not diluted by
administration costs.
