Comfort for typhoon victims

As soon as Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda struck the Philippines, Crossroads’ Global Hand service began to run hot. We have been responding ever since. Here’s a recent example.

A community in Portsmouth knitted up a storm when 400 contributors knitted squares that volunteers sewed into blankets of different sizes, hoping to donate them to people in need. Global Hand connected these blankets with people left impacted by the appalling ravages of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Many, hit by the shock of the event, mentioned blankets as some of the gifts they treasured the most: hand-made by concerned people on the other side of the world, and given when they had lost everything in their lives.
