Relief Response to Super Typhoon Haiyan Victims Assessed
Water Missions Intl. is gaining a better understanding of the magnitude of the needs in the Philippines
Water Missions Intl. is working diligently with partner organizations to assist with disaster relief aid for victims of super Typhoon Haiyan. The largest storm in recorded history, Haiyan struck the central Philippines this morning, slamming the islands with rain and gusts of wind up to 235 mph. Massive flooding and sustained winds of 195 mph have destroyed property and displaced thousands.
"Disastrous flooding contaminates water sources and creates a scarcity of the one thing most vital to survival—safe drinking water. Water Missions Intl. is currently providing consultation to partnering organizations on how to help those devastated by this storm. If needed, we have 40 disaster response units ready to ship and our staff is on call to mobilize," said Co-founder and CEO of Water Missions Intl., George Greene III, P.E., Ph.D.
The company is continuing to gain a better understanding of the magnitude of the needs of those affected by this unprecedented typhoon and the capacity in which it will respond.
