AMURT & AMURTEL has relief teams in the area where deadly typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines over the weekend. More than 10,000 people are feared dead in a trail of utter devastation.
One of our team reached Bogo in North Cebu on Sunday and found total devastation and no other organizations active. They started a food distribution of both cooked and dry stock, and will continue throughout the week.
A second team reached the worst hit Tacloban and had to use chain saw to cut through trees blocking the roads in the city. They reported a tense security situation with people searching for food and water. From Cebu a third supply team is en route to Tacloban with food supplies under armed guards.
The task is great and the teams on the ground deserve our support. Donations can be made here:
