You Can Help the Philippines Recover from Typhoon Haiyan

 

You’ve seen the images. Whole communities are nothing but splintered wood. Thousands dead. Thousands more desperate for food, water, and shelter. All this on the heels of a magnitude-7.2 earthquake just two weeks prior.

In spite of it all, Feed The Children’s staff persist. They are checking on all of the people in all of the communities they serve. They are driving mobile kitchens out into typhoon-devastated areas, serving hot food fortified with VitaMeal and delivering bags of rice and bottled water to children and their families. (VitaMeal provides an essential balance of nutrients for brain and skeletal development, skin health, and immune defense, prevents dehydration with electrolytes, and provides 25 vitamins and minerals.)

The Philippines needs assistance today; but beyond that, they need investors for tomorrow.  Feed The Children has been there for 25 years, and they are committed to staying for the long haul.
