Manila, Philippines: While Typhoon Rammasun has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) the effects of this storm are still being felt, and will be for some time.
Nazarene Disaster Response members were busy throughout the entire day and long into the evening on Thursday, July 17th, preparing 1,000 food relief packs. These packs will be distributed to areas hit hardest by Typhoon Rammasun, throughout the Southern Tagalog, Bicol, and Metro Manila Districts.
The response efforts will also include more than 370 Crisis Care Kits (CCKs). These CCKs were shipped in advance by Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, and were staged in Manila, ready for immediate distribution when needed.
A Work and Witness Team from Rancho Cucamonga, CA, who had come to the Philippines to help in rebuilding after last year’s Super Typhoon Yolanda, received a unique surprise! They ended up being stranded in the Philippines by Typhoon Rammasun, and as a result, were able to participate in preparation of the disaster aid for this storm!
Thank you to Nazarene Churches around the Globe that have given to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries and who have prepared and shipped Crisis Care Kits!
Your partnership in times like this make an incredible difference! You are touching lives for eternity!
