As Super Typhoon Mangkhut rages across the Philippines , it has taken our Mercy In Action clinic roof with it. Both our prenatal clinic and the adjoining midwife guest house are badly damaged on Luzon island. Please help Mercy In Action repair our buildings and reconstruct our roofs on these buildings so that the vital maternity care provided by our dedicated midwives can continue to serve the local women living in poverty.
Super Typhoon Mangkhut (known locally in the Philippines as Ompong), the world's strongest storm this year, is blasting the Philippines with strong winds and heavy rain. Our prenatal clinic on Luzon island is damaged - it lost its roof - and our midwife guest house and maternity waiting home are damaged as well.
This project, when funded, will allow us to rebuild the clinic roof and repair the midwife guest house and maternity waiting home that were damaged in Super Typhoon Mangkhut.
The Mercy In Action prenatal clinic and maternity waiting home on Luzon island meets the healthcare needs of local pregnant women living in poverty in and around Olongapo. The clinic serves women we are living in resettlement camps from past disasters, and women who are living on the local garbage dump. With needed repairs to our buildings, the midwives can go on serving the local pregnant women who depend on us for excellent and compassionate healthcare during pregnancy and during postpartum.
