Typhoon Haiyan Has Devastated the Philippines. Please Help Today!
Millions of lives have been impacted and the human suffering is catastrophic. Your gift will make a difference and demonstrate God’s love in a time of need. The Philippines’ geography makes response very complicated. Due to the number of islands and the uneven impact on regions knowing who is in need beyond the major cities and regions is critical to saving lives.
Thankfully, our local partner is already on the ground and is mobilized to provide a fast and effective response to this tragedy. Their existing connections in the local community allow them to quickly identify those in most need of aid and reach many of the areas that are difficult to access for larger aid agencies and government initiatives.
Your donation will go directly to one of three phases:
- Rescuing lives, as long as one more person can be provided with needed food, water and medicine funds will go this effort.
- Rebuilding homes and churches, people need to have basic housing and a place of security for children and possessions. They also need to have a sense of community and comfort in their faith by having a place to worship together
- Restoring lives, as funds are available after some normalcy begins to emerge, people will need to have livelihoods to move past this terrible time. Some of the rebuilding of lives will include replacing fishing boats, creating fish farms and restoring agricultural land.
