It was a fine Wednesday morning for the residents of Abra who were just going about their usual routines. Light rain sizzle in the streets as the workers start their busy day, while others remained cooped up in their homes—oblivious to the tragedy that is about to befall the land.
Then a magnitude 7.0 earthquake jolted the whole province.
The next thing they know, everything they had was gone.
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council reports that the strong quake claimed lives, injured hundreds, displaced thousands, and damaged billions-worth of homes and infrastructures in Abra and northern parts of Luzon.
The whole province and nearby areas spent the following days in state of utter shock—hoping and praying that they could rise from the rubble again.
To share a ray of hope to quake-stunned families in Abra, Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, swiftly deployed a disaster response team to conduct a rapid assessment and deliver lifesaving help.
Operation Blessing’s staff and volunteers braved their way to Abra and is set to reach survivors who are still reeling from one of the biggest earthquakes that shook the province.
The team has been coordinating and strategizing with the Local Government Unit to bring relief when and where it is needed most.
Through your prayers and support, we can help our kababayans get back on their feet!
