A New Home for Angel in the Philippines

Field Report by Operation Blessing

PHILIPPINES – After a typhoon destroyed Angel’s home in the Philippines, her family had nowhere safe to stay. Angel and her siblings did their best to sleep through the storm, but they were frightened. “I am scared of the typhoon and strong winds,” she told OB staff. “It makes my chest hurt. But my little sister was scared too, so I covered her with a blanket.”

The typhoon left the family in a dangerous living situation. But due to the COVID-19 crisis, Angel’s father Roland lost his job. The single father built his family a makeshift shanty using scrap wood because he was unable to afford anything else. “I worry about my kids, ” said Roland. “I worry about how I can rebuild my house.”

But thanks to your generosity, Operation Blessing stepped in to help. When OB staff delivered a food package to Roland and his children, they saw how dire their living situation was. And thanks to your support, we were able to build the family a new home. Now, Angel has a safe new home in the Philippines. “We have a new house!” she exclaimed joyfully. “I’m happy!”

This is all thanks to your generous giving during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for the support you show to families like Angel’s at home and around the world. God bless you for your faithfulness.
