Help the Philippines

Help the Philippines. The damage from Super Typhoon Haiyan continues to be assessed.

The typhoon, which hit the Philippines on Friday, Nov. 8, is being reported as one of the strongest storms recorded to hit the planet.

According to the Philippine Government an estimated 582,000 children and families are now homeless.

These displaced children and families are helpless and in need of urgent help.

This is where Compassion, with your help, steps in.

Compassion has been working in the Philippines through the church since 1977. Currently we partner with over 340 churches. In times like these, mobilizing the church is the best answer.

According to Compassion Philippines Country Director Noel Pabiona, severely affected areas have no water, food, power and means of communication.
