PROJECT NAME: Philippines Typhoon Response
LOCATION: Eastern Samar, Philippines
GOAL: Provide for those affected by Typhoon Ambo
On May 14th, the Philippines was ravaged by Typhoon Ambo, bringing devastation to an estimated 47,000 families. All of this in the midst of the misery of the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, their streets are flooded, their homes collapsed, and their water supply has been contaminated.
One man called in tears:
“SOMEBODY FROM JIPAPAD CALLED ME YESTERDAY BEGGING FOR OUR HELP THROUGH WATER FILTERS BECAUSE WHOLE TOWN OF JIPAPAD WAS FLASHED OUT WITH MUDDY FLOOD AND SO THE DRINKING WATER IS VERY CRITICAL FOR THEIR HEALTH. HE SAID THAT IF THEY WILL HAVE A WATER FILTER THEY CAN GET WATER FROM THE RIVER AND THAT WILL SUSTAIN FOR THEM FOR A LONG PERIOD.”
Meet Pastor Ronnalyn
Ronnalyn and her team have spent the last seven weeks working tirelessly to provide food to the starving people of the Philippines who lost their incomes due to Coronavirus. She has been consistently pouring herself out for the sake of the poor.
The Need: Clean Water and Shelter
Typhoon Ambo destroyed Ronnalyn’s home and church. She now has nowhere to distribute food from. In fact, she has nowhere to call home.
$6250USD will enable Ronnalyn to re-establish her home (not shown) so she can resume caring for the poor.
Additionally, families in towns like Jipapad will face severe illness or even death due to contaminated water. A $75 filter will provide safe drinking water for up to three families, sustaining them through this crisis and for many years to come.
Will you help?
WILL YOU HELP RONALYN AND HER COMMUNITY RECOVER?
WILL YOU HELP HER RESUME FEEDING FOR THE POOR?
WILL YOU PROVIDE THEM WITH CLEAN WATER?
Pastor Ronalynn’s home is being rebuilt!
“Indeed, the word of God that says He is a very present help in times of need was again proven to us true… It has come to a point that we didn’t know what to do, there was no place in our house where we can have a decent sleep, and people just keep coming asking for our help. Our responsibilities as Pastors and parents were tested all the more after Typhoon Ambo with the pandemic on the other hand. But we have proven that God is indeed faithful because of everyone who has extended their help to us, especially Impact Nations. So, with all our hearts, our family especially our children who are very excited and overjoyed that our house is now being fixed, a big Thank You!”
Their entire roof was blown out by the typhoon and will now be replaced by a new one with stronger trusses and beams.
