Philippines Devastated in the Wake of Typhoon Bopha

MANILA, Philippines—Over 1,000 people were killed and more than 970,000 were displaced after a powerful typhoon brought destruction across the Philippines on Tuesday, December 4, 2012. One month later, Jehovah’s Witnesses are continuing to provide disaster relief to the victims of Typhoon Bopha (locally known as Pablo).

As of January 7, the branch office of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Manila confirmed that, sadly, five Witnesses died as a direct result of the storm. Another was hospitalized after suffering a serious spinal injury. In addition, some 520 Witness families were displaced as 140 homes were destroyed and another 400 damaged.
