Your tax-deductible gift will provide emergency relief to villagers in the Philippines following Typhoon OdetteGive now
On Friday 17th December Super-Typhoon Odette struck the Philippines. In the province of Palawan, the Typhoon did not follow the expected path and the destruction was vast. Roads are still cut from landslides and bridges have been destroyed. This has made the delivery of aid extremely complex. Communications were completely blacked out for 4 days. Dozens of people have sadly died and many are reported missing, swept away by flooding, many of them children. Countless homes and crops have been damaged or completely destroyed. Electricity is still mostly down and water supplies are limited.
CMS Missionaries Howard and Michelle Newby live and work in this province and through their contacts are coordinating immediate deliveries of food by boat to the worst affected areas that have been cut off. So far they have arranged over 1.5 tonnes of rice as well as tinned goods and noodles to be delivered by boat. This can be repeated daily and each shipment will feed 150 families for approximately 10 days.
$55 will provide rice for 5 families for 10 days.
Donations will be used to purchase and send immediate food supplies and and then assist with medicine, emergency shelters and building supplies.
Please help us let grace flow to the Philippines.
