Operation Blessing's VP of International Operations, David Darg, is on the ground in Tacloban with OB Philippine staff to bring relief to typhoon victims. 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.
