Emergency Response

Hello there. I just received this message from our World Vision Youth Team.

Friends,

On Friday November 8th, the strongest typhoon to ever hit land slammed into the central Philippines, killing an estimated 1,200 people, forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes and knocking out power and communications across the country. The destruction has made it impossible to fully determine the extent of the casualties and damage.World Vision is on the ground assessing the damage and determining the needs and the full scale of the response. Food, clean water, essential household supplies, hygiene kits and emergency shelter are the most urgent needs. Families are already living in cramped conditions in evacuation centers. One of the most extensive needs will be assistance to recover livelihoods. Farmland has been destroyed, buildings blown away and businesses washed away. World Vision is mounting a massive response. With 55 years of experience in the Philippines and staff members based throughout the country, we are currently working closely with national and local government disaster response teams to assess both immediate and long-term needs. Our goal is to help 1.2 million people with life-saving essentials, as well as ensuring safety and protection for the most vulnerable, especially women and children.
You can help World Vision provide essential relief supplies by donating online or call: 1866 595 5550To learn more about World Vision’s response to this disaster, click here.
I hope you guys are willing to help.
God Bless everybody.
