churches are acting as drop off points with lower distribution costs
and we plan to extend our provisional outreach for at least two months.
Food is a critical priority".

Donation going directly to one of three phases:
Rescuing lives; providing food, clean water and medicine.
Rebuilding homes and churches; people need basic housing and a safe place for their families. They
also need to have a sense of community and a place to worship together.
Restoring lives; as funds are available, people will need help to restore their
livelihoods. This will include replacing fishing boats, creating
fish farms and restoring agricultural land.
