Residents gather coins and other salvageable materials from the ruins of houses after Super Typhoon Haiyan battered Tacloban city in central Philippines November 10, 2013.

One of the strongest storms in recorded history has devastated central Philippines. The super storm known as Yolanda in the Philippines has left devastation on a monumental scale and affected millions. Many people have been killed in this tragedy and thousands more are without homes, food and basic necessities.

Cru has over 200 staff ministering in the Philippines in the midst of the devastation and loss. Many of our staff have been directly affected by the typhoon and have lost almost everything.

Beginning on November 13, GAiN Philippines organized PCCC staff members and university students in Manila to sort the food, water, medicine and clothing that an airline company offered to transport for free.

Our staff in the Philippines have asked for prayer for the following:

We are doing everything we can to come to the aid of our staff and the people to whom they are ministering during this devastating crisis. Please consider a generous gift to help them today. They are in need of urgent, immediate funds.
