Long-term Ministry to 45 Family Flood Victims

The 12 family-victims of Typhoon Sendong (Washi) that we adopted were moved to an old government building. We have visited the site and met with the camp manager several times already.

  1. Though dilapidated, the old building is so much better than tents. Therefore, the 12 families do not need tent improvement anymore.
  2. The camp has a total of 45 families. It will create division and jealousy if we only serve the 12 families. Therefore, we revised our original plan to include all 45 families.

Based on our consultative meetings, studies and analysis, these families will live in the evacuation center for 1 year before they get their new home from the government. Therefore, we have to support them for a year. Specifically, we want to ensure that their living conditions are improved and that they are protected from disease and other dangers.

The following is a list of our activities:

  1. Regular visitation of each family
  2. Spiritual and psychosocial support sessions for parents and children
  3. Weekly group dinner and fellowship
  4. Distribution of water filters
  5. Distribution of a weekly food ration of 10 kilos of rice, beans, meat, vegetables, etc.
  6. Distribution of appropriate medicines for the ill
  7. Distribution of school supplies for the children

Please pray for us as we continue to serve flood victim-survivors in our city.
