Flood Death Toll Now 92; Our Mission Serves 37 Families

New Hope

The number of people who died due to monsoon floods in Manila and Luzon has now reached 92.

Affected individuals = 3.4 million +
Displaced person = 768,989
In evacuation centers = 430,125
Damaged houses = 8,428

Disease outbreaks are feared. Food and water remains scarce in many areas, many of which are hard to reach due to damaged roads.

Moreover, government authorities warn of more heavy rains and floods as a low-pressure area east of Northern Luzon had intensified into a tropical storm called “Helen.”

As initial outreach, our mission is serving 37 families in affected areas.

Pray. Help. Give.
