As Typhoon Haiyan sweeps through the Philippines bringing destruction in its wake, World Vision is joining with the government in rapid assessment and response teams.
As Typhoon Haiyan continued to make its way west across the Philippines Friday, World Vision expressed concern that what was shaping up to be the Philippines' strongest typhoon of the year could leave a path of "vast destruction" in its wake.
Typhoon Haiyan, considered one of the strongest tropical storms ever, made landfall in the Philippines early November 8 and caused catastrophic damage. World Vision’s teams are assessing the damage and mobilizing a response.
World Vision continues to support storm-affected communities by equipping local churches and community groups who serve families in great need.
