Philippine Aid Operation Hampered by Scale of Destruction
[ePrayer – Pray for the Typhoon victims and the relief work]
CEDAR Fund’s local partners are responding to the desperate need of 9.5 million people affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines, working with local churches to deliver food packs to 7,000 affected families in Leyte and Samar provinces. Poor communications and access difficulties are still hampering relief efforts. Integral Alliance, in which CEDAR is a member agency, is currently meeting local partners to carry out a crisis mapping to further support relief operations in badly hit areas. Integral Alliance members from UK, Switzerland, USA and CEDAR partners from India and Indonesia who are well experienced in disaster management are arriving the Philippines to support relief effort there.

Pray for the Typhoon victims and the relief work:
- Pray for God’s healing and protection to the victims; and for His comfort to those who have lost their beloved ones and homes;
- Pray for debris clearing of roads so that the main supply route can be passable for transporting necessary relief goods and reach affected populations;
- Pray for smooth emergency operations and for the safety of all types of frontline aid workers;
- Pray for good planning and coordination from the Philippine government on disaster relief and rehabilitation.
