A massive storm swept over the Philippines leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan’s 150 mph winds drove huge waves ashore, crashing into villages and towns, flattening buildings and ripping families apart. The storm is one of the strongest on record.
It’s been a month since the storm hit, but the emergency is far from over. Many families are still searching for food, some even looking through garbage piles to find something to eat. Water supplies were contaminated and are now unsafe to drink. Hospitals are overwhelmed and medical supplies are running low.
So many people are still searching to see what remains of their livelihoods and if they can find their missing loved ones. The tragedy has hit so many across the provinces of the island nation. We spoke with Jerry Krosnowski, President of Risen Saviour Missions for an update of his ministry’s work in the aftermath of the tragedy and your help is still needed.
