In Nov 2013, one of the deadliest typhoons ever recorded struck the Philippines.  Jacob’s Well responded straight away by sending a container full of food, clothing and medical supplies. In response to urgent requests to help people rebuild their homes, we sent a second container shortly afterwards filled with building material, tools and machinery to help the local people rebuild their own homes.  Our aid has been channelled through a Norwegian aid organisation based in Hernani, a city of around 10 000 people a few hours drive from Tacloban, the regional capital.  Hernani was one of the worst affected towns, with hardly any buildings left standing.
