Intense flooding. Heavy rains. Trees and posts toppled by violent winds. Displaced families. Destroyed boats, infrastructures, and fields.
That is what Typhoon Ambo’s aftermath looks like.
Typhoon Ambo left families reeling from the impact. After wreaking havoc in Eastern Samar last May 14, thousands of families lost their homes and livelihoods.
At the same time, the health risks brought by the current pandemic made the situation even more challenging for the affected individuals. They were forced to move to evacuation centers while observing social distancing and other safety measures.
Battered by a calamity while facing a health crisis, the survivors struggled to cope and see hope.
That is why it’s a huge relief for them when CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines (OB), reached their community and brought much-needed food items.
Because of your unfaltering support, hundreds of kababayans in Barangays Natividad, Cahagwayan, and Baras in San Policarpio, Eastern Samar received food supplies. San Policarpio was the first to brave Typhoon Ambo’s impact when it made its first landfall in the town, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The residents have been coping with the wet “palay” (unhusked rice) due to heavy rains and strong winds that ravaged their fields, and your timely giving provided them food for the next few weeks.
Furthermore, the OB team in Tacloban mobilized help and provided food assistance to families in Barangays Tawagan, Relocation, Paypayon in Oras, Eastern Samar.
Continue to be an instrument of hope and comfort to our kababayans!
