Watch the entire episode of A Closer Walk’s Philippines episode: Stronger than the Storm.
In the Philippines, fishing is more than a hobby or even a job. It is hand-to-mouth subsistence. Any disruption to this livelihood puts a strain on the already slim wallets and bellies of fishermen and their families. Following the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan, thousands of families felt hopeless. Their boats were destroyed and their nets were ruined or missing. There was no food on the table. In many cases, there was no longer even a table, or a roof for that matter. But as soon as the winds died down, ADRA went to work. Join local ADRA staff Gabe and Denison as they show us how disaster response is more than rebuilding infrastructure: it is also rebuilding sustainability, security, and identity.
Airs Fridays at 7 PM EST on Hope Channel (www.hopetv.org).
