Providing Critical Relief to Isolated Island Communities in the Philippines

More than one month after Super Typhoon Rai slammed into the Philippines, Samaritan’s Purse is still working hard to meet the needs of remote island villages. Many of these impoverished communities are only accessible by boat, making relief efforts much more difficult.

Samaritan’s Purse continues to serve in these cut-off areas, bringing emergency relief supplies such as food, shelter material, and water filtration kits. They're also distributing hygiene kits that include toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, laundry powder, hair combs, and underwear. In addition, the kits include important infection prevention items like face masks.
