International Emergency Relief
Samaritan’s Purse is meeting physical and spiritual needs in the aftermath of the terrible storm that devastated the Philippines.The deadly super typhoon was one of the most powerful ever recorded. The winds leveled tens of thousands of homes. In some places, tsunami-like storm surges swept up to a mile inland, causing more destruction and loss of life. At least 580,000 people have been displaced. Samaritan’s Purse deployed disaster response specialists immediately after the storm. Community water filters, protective tarps, blankets, hygiene kits, and emergency family food packets are being distributed to storm victims. An airlift of emergency supplies is on the way.
