Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is working in collaboration with mission partner, the National Council of Churches Philippines (NCCP), and other members of ACT Alliance to respond to this crisis. Initial response also includes the provision of non-food items, material resources, drinking water, emergency shelter kits and cash-for-work-programs.
A major humanitarian operation by our partners is anticipated. Coordination of the relief effort is necessary as many operations are currently in place from many different agencies.
PDA will respond with One Great Hour of Sharing and designated funds as the assessment is complete, needs are identified, and the appeal for assistance is issued.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has set up a direct response account for donations. Please donate through your church. Churches can direct funds to the Presbytery Office designated for account DR000012 – Phillipines.

Why are there no opportunities for volunteers to go to the Philipinees?
Most likely PDA will list a call for volunteers when it is safe for volunteers to be in the area. Officials are still evacuating residents to safety.
