General Superintendent Dr. J.K. Warrick gives an Urgent Call to Action regarding the devastation from Super Typhoon Haiyan and the Nazarene response in progress.
We have an initial 8 medical team members on the ground dispersed in three locations.
Our first priority is to address life-threatening needs and to establish centers for distribution of critical relief food and water. National Nazarenes have been coordinating this distribution (we are serving to empower the Philippine Church and assisting them in their response).
We will begin looking at the longer term recovery, which will include teams to help with debris removal, rebuilding, counseling, and various other elements involved in such a massive disaster.
