The purposes of this project are to give immediate relief and to help with rehabilitation for those affected by natural disasters and political conflict. WV workers in the Philippines frequently have opportunities to share the love of God, establish new relationships, and open new doors of ministry by offering help in times of disaster and emergency.
The location of the Republic of the Philippines on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean makes it prone to typhoons, floods, earthquakes, and volcano eruptions every year. Political unrest make it prone to civil turmoil.
Relief and rehabilitation will aid in establishing local churches, by encouraging and blessing church members who have lost their homes, church buildings, or means of livelihood.
This project will fund ministries of compassion, leading to opportunities to introduce people to a transformed life in Jesus Christ.
