Salvation Army Serving Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan

The Salvation Army is serving survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in the aftermath of the deadliest natural disaster on record. Classified as a category 5 typhoon, the scale of devastation became clear Sunday as the death toll is estimated to be as high as 10,000 or more.

 Emergency Disaster Service teams have been providing essentials to those affected by the typhoon since the storm hit Friday, including food, shelter, water, and emotional and spiritual care.

“The Salvation Army is on the ground serving the immediate needs of survivors,” said Major Ron Busroe, The Salvation Army’s National Community Relations and Development Secretary. “Donations from the generous public will help provide basic necessities that survivors desperately need right now. But the effects of this tragedy will be felt for months – even years. We know that emotional and spiritual counseling is equally important for survivors to deal with the gravity of the situation.”

With more than 75 offices throughout the country, Salvation Army volunteers and staff are well prepared to service the immediate and long-term needs of those impacted by this disaster.

Monetary donations are the most critical need for survivors. To give, visit  https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/TyphoonHaiyan or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769).

  2. Matthew 25:35-45 (CJB)

    One verse per line35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you made me your guest, 36 I needed clothes and you provided them, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’37 Then the people who have done what God wants will reply, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and make you our guest, or needing clothes and provide them? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’ 40The King will say to them, `Yes! I tell you that whenever you did these things for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did them for me!’ 41 ”Then he will also speak to those on his left, saying, `Get away from me, you who are cursed! Go off into the fire prepared for the Adversary and his angels!42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 a stranger and you did not welcome me, needing clothes and you did not give them to me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they too will reply, `Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, a stranger, needing clothes, sick or in prison, and not take care of you?’45 And he will answer them, `Yes! I tell you that whenever you refused to do it for the least important of these people, you refused to do it for me!’
