Convoy of Hope to ship food to flooded Philippines

Posted online
Responding to recent flooding in the Philippines, Convoy of Hope will supply food to Luzon, where about 30,000 families have been affected.

"Food and clean drinking water are critical needs in the area because water wells have been inundated with flood water," Jeff Nene, public relations officer for Convoy of Hope, said in a news release. "We have containers full of food headed for the area."

Convoy of Hope is teaming up with its long-term partner, Minnesota-based Feed My Starving Children, which has supplied a shipping container full of food.

The Springfield nonprofit will ship the container for use by its people already providing aid on the ground in the area.

"Our in-country director is reporting that thousands of homes have been damaged and many children are falling ill," Nene said in the release. "Our goal is to continue feeding the 35,000 children we feed each week and help those affected by the flooding."[[In-content Ad]]
