Supporting the Philippine Typhoon Victims

Please pray with us for the people in the Southern Philippine Island of Mindanao. This region was recently struck by a devastating typhoon which resulted in disastrous flooding. Hundreds have lost their lives and over 25,000 families in and around the city of Cagayan de Oro have lost everything they owned.

Hand of Hope, in conjunction with Convoy of Hope and Don Clower's Ministries, is providing much needed relief efforts to help those affected by this deadly disaster. Containers carrying 18,000 meals have been sent from Convoy of Hope’s warehouse in Manila to Mindanao where torrential rains have killed over 900 people. Convoy of Hope is coordinating relief efforts with local government officials and local churches in the region to make sure food and disaster relief clean-up is directed where it is needed most.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Mindanao as they recover from this disaster.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
