Feed the Children to respond to Typhoon Melor

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA., – Feed the Children is actively monitoring Typhoon Melor (Nona) which hit the Philippines Dec. 14, making landfall another three-four more times that week. The communities, people and government of the Philippines are resilient. Their local government units are currently meeting any immediate, emergency needs. In the coming weeks Feed the Children will be providing meals for school children in the affected areas.

For many years, Feed the Children has been a forerunner in responding quickly and efficiently to disasters. We are continually prepared to help during hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, even war and conflict — anything that leaves children and their families in a wake of devastation.

During their most difficult times, Feed the Children is an organization on which communities rely. Through hundreds of shipments of disaster relief items to our International Offices and Partner Agencies, Feed the Children has been able to provide assistance to those hit hardest during past disasters.
