On November 8, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the biggest storms ever recorded, slammed into the Philippines. The current death toll is 6,201 with 1,785 missing. More than 1.1 million houses were damaged or destroyed. Thanks to generous Covenant churches and individual donors, more than $190,000 has been donated to CWR in response to this terrible disaster.

Because of your generosity, Covenant World Relief has:

• Provided primary health care services via clinics in more than 300 villages through RTR Hospital in Tacloban, as they executed their disaster response plan with Medical Teams International.

• Supplied emergency food and relief packages, temporary shelters, support for on-the-ground coordination efforts and ongoing logistics for a disaster operation center with World Relief and PHILRADS (Philippines Relief and Development Services).

• Distributed relief supplies with the Jesus Covenant Church.

• Participated in the ongoing reconstruction of homes and rehabilitation of livelihoods with Operation Hope.

Because of the generosity of so many, CWR will be able to continue to work with partners in the Philippines in the long-term recovery phase for months and hopefully years to come.

Thank you to all who so strongly supported the initial relief efforts as well as the long-term recovery projects.
