Philippines Typhoon Haiyan

From our partners in Presbyterian Disaster Assistance:

One of the worst recorded typhoons in history, Haiyan has left many dead, hundreds of thousands displaced, and extensive damage.  The initial response includes provision of non-food items, drinking water and emergency shelter kits.  All PC(USA) mission workers are reported safe.  Read more.

PDA will respond with One Great Hour of Sharing and designated funds as assessments are completed, needs are identified, and an appeal for assistance is issued.

Give online to support disaster response in the Philippines.
