Week of Compassion has already responded to the destruction and harm caused by typhoon Haiyan, thanks to our Global Ministries partners at the United Church of Christ in the Philippines and is poised to respond through the ACT Alliance after their rapid response assessment is completed.

"We will continue to monitor this enormous disaster as it will undoubtedly affect hundreds of thousands of people. Please pray for those in harm's way and join us as we reach out to them in their time of need."

To contribute, go to the online donation page or write a check to Vine Street Christian Church, memo: WOC Phillipines.

A big Thank You to all who responded to Teresa's appeal for help in the recovery efforts after the earthquake on the island of Bohol. We were able to send a check for over $1,200 to the church on that Philippine island.
