Open letter by Franklin Graham, President, Samaritan's Purse:
The Philippines just got hit by one of the strongest typhoons in recorded history—one of the most violent storms to make landfall anywhere. It devastated the central part of the Philippines. Thousands of houses have been obliterated.
Could you imagine if every home in your town was damaged or destroyed, if every roof was missing, if all the power lines were down? Think if you saw hundreds of dead bodies in the streets. This is what is going on right now. And the misery factor is just going to increase.
Samaritan's Purse is responding. We have disaster relief specialists on the ground, including water and nutrition experts and medical personnel. We are working with church partners to deliver emergency supplies to those most in need.
