Philippines: Second typhoon relief container to load this week
Crossroads' second container of aid for Typhoon Haiyan survivors was loaded on 30th November, thanks to Standard Chartered volunteers who helped load the container (left), and thousands of people who donated disaster kits, construction supplies and other goods to aid the rebuilding effort.
After a first container arrived in the Philippines mid-November (right), carried free of charge by CNC Line, our partners on the ground told us the next most pressing need was for construction materials and other things to help people rebuild their homes and lives.
