Catholic Relief Services ready for Typhoon Haiyan

 |  NCR Today

Catholic Relief Services is preparing to help those in the Philippines who have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan, possibly the strongest storm ever to hit land.

“Catholic Relief Services, our partners and other aid agencies are in the process of mobilizing resources to help the government and the most affected areas. The typhoon was powerful and expansive, hitting a number of islands. It did not weaken as it passed through and hit a number of islands as a super typhoon. Based on other typhoons, like Typhoon Bopha last year, we can expect that this was a catastrophic typhoon, not only for one island but many,” Joe Curry, CRS Philippines country representative said in a press release.

For those wishing to help out, CRS includes a donation link in the press release.
