One Step Ahead

Operation Blessing’s campaign aims to give immediate help to our in-need kababayans.

Operation Blessing’s #OneStepAhead campaign aims to give immediate help to our in-need kababayans. But we cannot do this alone, we need YOU.

Operation Blessing has always been one step ahead when it comes to responding to our kababayans affected by typhoons and calamities. Even before these disastrous events hit the country, our team already assesses the potential damage and prepares for a possible disaster response program.

Prepared For Every Disaster

Earthquakes

Earthquakes happen unexpectedly. That is why we have made a commitment to disaster preparedness. With your support, Operation Blessing teams have worked on the front lines in the Philippines during major earthquake disasters.

Floods and Storms

In the days following floods and storms, Operation Blessing partners band together to provide emergency food, water, and supplies. You also contribute to the rebuilding of homes, lives, and the local economy in areas that require immediate assistance.

Humanitarian Crises

Natural disasters do not always cause disasters. From wars to refugee camps, your contributions enable Operation Blessing to help victims of humanitarian crises.
