Responding To The Earthquake In Italy

Responding to the Earthquake in Italy

Two days ago, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck northeast of Rome, Italy. Over 260 individuals have been confirmed dead from the quake, and over 5,000 rescuers are searching for the estimated hundreds still trapped in the rubble.

Thanks to our network of partners across the globe, Convoy of Hope Europe stands ready to respond to the crisis by utilizing contacts in cities like Rome, Milan, and L’Aquila.

Convoy of Hope Europe (COHEU) has been responding to the plight of refugees since 2013, when we started a feeding program for Syrian refugees in Jordan. Since then, the program provides 150 families with monthly food parcels as they await UNHCR processing and placement. In the last three years, an estimated 6,000 people have come through the program’s two locations in Irbid and East Amman. One of those refugees is a Muslim woman named Celia.

What is #HOPEDEMIC In this modern media era, it seems everything goes viral from the news to the inane. Our world isn't lacking in information or entertainment.

Philippines Update :: March 2014

On November 8, 2013, the Philippines was struck by a devastating typhoon that killed over 6,000 and displaced millions. Convoy of Hope’s Global Disaster Response Team sent relief supplies when Typhoon Haiyan was still on its way. Food and supplies were also on hand at the COH distribution center in Manila where 20,000 children are fed regularly. After the typhoon hit, hundreds of volunteers started distributing 1.24 million meals and provisions to eight provinces. Additionally, we’ve provided fishing nets, water filters, hygiene kits, and other supplies to help victims rebuild their lives. Repairs have also been completed on a local church in Danbantayan to ensure food storage and feeding programs in the area continue as these people are still in…
