Disaster Alert: March 1, 2021
In late February, several locations in central Surigao del Sur were flooded due to the Tropical Storm Auring that brought heavy rains and strong winds. Local government agencies initiated evacuation, search and rescue, as well as relief goods distribution before and during the storm. So far, four Child Development Centers have been affected. Beneficiary impact details are not yet available. The church partners are focused on cleanup efforts and assessing beneficiary impact.
Please pray for the church partners, affected beneficiaries and families, as they clean up and recover from losses and damages.
