ISOH/IMPACT, SCORE and partners are responding to the disaster in the Philippines to help children and their families following one the strongest storms ever recorded.

Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the central Philippines, causing widespread destruction and killing thousands.

The storm—one of the most powerful ever recorded—slammed into the island of Leyte early Friday morning with sustained winds reported as high as 195 mph and gusts up to 230 mph, flooding coastal communities. It triggered landslides, uprooted trees, and destroyed homes and entire communities as it quickly moved across the archipelago.

Officials fear that up to 10,000 people could be dead in the city of Tacloban alone. Early reports indicate that almost 350,000 people have been displaced.

ISOH/IMPACT is teaming up with SCORE to send in a first response team into Polo, New Washington in NE Panay.  A team of disaster relief specialists, including water and nutrition experts, will be on the ground this week.  ISOH/IMPACT will also be providing food that has been packaged through our Kids Against Hunger satellite ministry.  We will not only be working alongside other Christians in the Philippines who have often partnered with us to share the love of Jesus with people in need, but also other NGO’s and indigenous community partners assisting with the relief effort to deliver aid to those most in need.

Haiyan was classified as a Category 5 typhoon, and is one of the most powerful storms ever to hit land. For a time, storm clouds covered the entire Philippines, stretching 1,120 miles—the distance between Florida and Canada—and tropical storm-force winds covered an area the size of Germany.

It forced more than 750,000 from their homes as it lashed the central islands of Leyte and Samar with strong winds and 15-19 foot waves. The fast-moving storm quickly moved across the central Philippines, leaving widespread devastation in its wake.

“Reaching Out & Serving Others is what we are all about,” says Linda Greene, President/CEO of ISOH/IMPACT.  “When a child’s life is impacted, then the whole community is touched….this is when we see changes in the lives of those devastated by such catastrophic events.  We will do everything we can do to help children and their families in this time of need!”

Pictures we just received from Panay, Philippines…please keep the people of the Philippines and the team in your prayers!

Praise God, that the tents donated by generous donors of the community and National Flight Service Inc. are now providing shelter for families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.  Not only does this provide shelter but it provides protection against the mosquitos at night. We ask if you could please spread the word as we are still in great need of more tents. We believe that through pray and the grace of God that this will be funded so other families may have shelter to rest their heads. Thank you to all who have supported and continue to support this ministry so that we may show others the love of Jesus Christ! Please continue to lift the team and the families affected by Typhoon Haiyan up in prayer as everyone joins together to rebuild the communities and restore the shattered lives affected by this disaster. God bless and thanks for all you do!
