One month has passed since Typhoon Odette wreak havoc in the country and brought torrential rains, catastrophic winds, and landslides.
The strongest typhoon of 2021 did not spare billions worth of agriculture, infrastructure, and homes. Thousands of our kababayans in Visayas and Mindanao were displaced; others are seeking immediate relief and hope.
The year has changed but one thing remains: Families affected by Typhoon Odette are still reeling from its impact.
Norma Bulilan could still vividly recall the shock and hopelessness she felt when she saw the ruins of their home.
The 49-year-old mother is just one of the residents in the coastal community of Panaytayon, Tubigon in Bohol who lost their home and livelihood during Typhoon Odette’s onslaught.
“The day after Typhoon Odette hit, I left the evacuation site and went back to check our home. Seeing that our house was one of those that have been destroyed, I said, ‘My God, what would we do now?‘” Norma recalled.
Just like her neighbors, Norma was clueless as to how they can survive each day and rebuild their lives, “I don’t know where to start. Our house and everything were washed out. My only prayer now is for God to help us recover.”
Thankfully, your compassion has reached our kababayans in Bohol!
Your prayers and donation to Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, have helped the ministry conduct nonstop relief efforts to survivors of Typhoon Odette.
Norma and hundreds of families in Bohol received food bags, hygiene kits, and clean drinking water. Operation Blessing’s disaster response team, together with church partner Christ the Redeemer Evangelical Fellowship, also travelled by boat to reach our kababayans living in the island communities of Jandayan, Nasingin, and Pandanon in Getafe, Bohol.
You also helped us reach typhoon-affected families in Palawan!
In partnership with the local government units of Palawan, Port Barton Marine Park, Foursquare Church, and the 6th Civil Relations Group, Palawan – Civil Relations Service Armed Forces of the Philippines, Operation Blessing distributed food supplies to the residents of San Vicente and Roxas.
Many of them are depending on relief goods to survive, that’s why your gift of food supply and constant prayers matter a lot.
