Flood Death Toll Now 92; Open Eyes Mission Serves 37 Families

The number of people who died due to monsoon floods in Manila and Luzon has now reached 92.

Affected individuals = 3.4 million +
Displaced person = 768,989
In evacuation centers = 430,125
Damaged houses = 8,428

Disease outbreaks are feared. Food and water remains scarce in many areas, many of which are hard to reach due to damaged roads.

Moreover, government authorities warn of more heavy rains and floods as a low-pressure area east of Northern Luzon had intensified into a tropical storm called “Helen.”

As initial outreach, our mission is serving 37 families in affected areas.

Pray. Help. Give.

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
