Families in the Philippines are struggling to survive in the wake of one of the strongest storms in recorded history. Right now, food and water are critical for survivors. Many have now gone days without either as aid workers and military personnel work to reach those trapped in devastated areas.
Operation Blessing has deployed teams to multiple locations to help bring emergency relief such as food, clean water, sleeping mats, blankets and more to affected families in the hardest hit areas. We’re also sending state-of-the-art water purification devices to the Philippines, including a chlorine generator capable of producing enough chlorine to disinfect over 300,000 gallons of water each day.
Every day, Esther walked 10 hours a day to get water for her family - bearing the heavy weight on her forehead and neck. Now, thanks to a partnership between Operation Blessing and Greif, she has a new well in her village and a specially designed backpack that efficiently distributes the weight of the water.
For the past 11 years Operation Blessing and the Washington Redskins have partnered to bring Thanksgiving meals to families that wouldn't otherwise have the meal that many of us experience every year. Current Redskins players and alumni come together with a sea of volunteers to bless families across inner-city Washington DC.
