The super typhoon affected almost all the areas served by International Care Ministries (ICM): Cebu, Bohol, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo, Kalibo, and Palawan. There are currently 600 full-time staff who live in these communities and ICM has pre-positioned anti-malnutrition food in the provinces for these exact times. ICM’s 10,000 partner pastors will help identify the specific families in dire need so they could get help quickly. If you would like to help empower ICM to help as many families as possible, you can donate here.

The Foundation began relief operations in Negros on December 17 and worked through the holidays to get help to those who need it distributing drinking water, Mingo Meals (a nutritious instant porridge made from malunggay, mongo and rice), canned goods, noodles, and rice.
