It’s with heavy hearts that we are reaching out to you about an urgent need.

As you are probably aware the Philippines was hit by Super Typhoon Haiyan last week causing much destruction and devastation.

News agencies are reporting that Haiyan was three and a half times more powerful than Hurricane Katrina and upwards of 10,000 men, women and children are feared dead.

If you are a sponsor of a child in the Philippines, please know that we are working closely with the country office to assess the damage.  Communications in the affected area are still down but we will update you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please pray. Thousands of children and families have lost their homes and are in need of food, water, shelter and medical attention.


In times of crisis like this, so many of us feel helpless and just want to do something, anything that will make a difference.

We thank you for your hearts to help and want to let you know what our current needs are:
