Typhoon Haiyan response

 After Josefina O. Macion's house was destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan, she and her family received two MCC-supported food packages of 55 pounds of rice, sardines, oil, sugar, salt and water. The rations relieved their worries about food while they were sheltered in a school that served as an evacuation center in the coastal village of San Jose. 


MCC's initial emergency response of food and hygiene kits has been completed by our partner, Church World Service (CWS), through its partner, International Children’s Action Network (ICAN), during the first and third weeks after Typhoon Haiyan. MCC staff is on the ground in the Philippines to determine our longer-term, community-based response.
