The family of Lilibeth Anos, 43 years old and mother of 3, is just one of the hundreds that were affected by typhoon Jolina when it hit Samar province last September this year.
Their house is made of wood and nipa’s, and it was badly damaged. Most of their belongings were wet in the rain especially their clothes, sleeping mats, and pillows. Due to the cold of that situation after the typhoon, her 5-year-old kid got flu, making the circumstances harder. Her husband’s job was also interrupted, which pushed them to just borrow money from other people to get through.
Scenarios like this bring Operation Blessing (OB) to many places in the Philippines to conduct its Disaster Response.
Food bags and Bibles were distributed to our kababayans just like Lilibeth.
“I am very thankful to Operation Blessing for this food bag. This will help us endure the coming days, especially that we have no food left to eat or money to buy our needs,” appreciatively said Lilibeth.
Being #OneStepAhead in providing immediate relief is Operation Blessing’s constant love language. This is the “OB” way of making our kababayans feel that they are not forgotten especially at times of need.
Disasters may break houses and material things, but WE can be a tool that rebuilds hope to those that God is giving us the opportunity to assist. Help us respond immediately to disasters by donating today through our #OneStepAhead campaign at www.operationblessing.ph/give.
