Philippines Disaster Appeal


More than 10,000 people are thought to have lost their lives in the disaster, with hundreds of thousands left without homes, power or clean water after Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Typhoon Yolanda).

Salvation Army teams in the Philippines are preparing to provide assistance to the thousands upon thousands of people affected; responding to the immediate need for ongoing development work.

Territorial Commander Colonel Wayne Maxwell for the Philippines said: ‘The Island of Leyte has four corps (Salvation Army churches) and there are other islands that have experienced major levels of devastation. The task for us is immense and our cash extremely limited!’'
