Typhoon Haiyan

A message from the RCA CARE Network

Typhoon Haiyan–possibly the strongest tropical storm ever to hit land–blew through the Philippines last November causing extensive damage and killing thousands.

The RCA CARE Network is responding to the disaster on several fronts. “Our capable partners immediately began responding to Typhoon Haiyan, and going forward, we will be supporting the efforts of World Vision and World Renew,” says Jay Harsevoort, coordinator of the RCA CARE Network. The RCA CARE Network has already disbursed initial grants to World Vision and Food for the Hungry. Both are active in the Philippines.

What you can do:

Please pray for the people whose lives have been torn apart by this typhoon–for people who have lost loved ones, suffered injury, or sustained damage to their homes or businesses. Pray too for the rescue workers, first responders, and early response coordinators.

Donations should be made directly to the RCA:
