Shoreline-based World Concern responds to devastating typhoon in Philippines

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Shoreline-based World Concern is responding to assist families affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan, which battered the Philippines on Friday, destroying entire communities.

Officials estimate nearly 10 million people are affected by this disaster, and the death toll is rising as more areas become accessible.

Through their Integral Alliance partners on the ground, World Concern will help provide emergency food and supplies to displaced families, as well as psychological support to traumatized children. 

“The number of people impacted by this disaster is shocking. Those numbers represent boys and girls, moms and dad – real people who have lost everything and are suffering greatly. Our prayers are with each one and our intent is to bring comfort and relief to them in practical ways,” said World Concern President Jacinta Tegman. 

World Concern Deputy Director of Disaster Response Chris Sheach left Seattle Wednesday to travel to the Philippines to help coordinate relief efforts and provide technical support on the ground.

My community is having a huge bake sale for the relief efforts. My friend and I contacted the Philippine community from local churches and this is a way they can help and not feel like their hands are tied and unable to contribute. Location to be announced Kent, WA. on Nov. 23rd from 11:00am to 3:00 pm
Our Prayers and Blessings of Peace to all. Coleen and Gemma
