Baptist Global Response
On Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the Philippines, leaving more than 4,000 dead, more than 1,600 missing and more than 18,000 injured. Survivors now face desperate need for food, water and medicine. Southern Baptists and their partners in the Philippines are responding to immediate needs and will formulate a longer-term strategy for helping affected people rebuild their lives. BGR expects this effort to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The task also requires considerable amounts of prayer and hard work.
