IMMEDIATE Need in the Philippines

I received this urgent request for assistance from our team leader in the Philippines .   Please pray about making a donation to help save lives.

Read his email for details.


Dear Dr. Patterson,

Thank you once again. Your blessing and caring for us is sincerely appreciated.

What the internally displaced people needs are toilets, water supply and tents. Solar power kits are also needed. We would need about P150,000, Philippine currency or about  $3000 USD. The amount will be for the construction of two toilets, a deep well, a multipurpose hall, and seed money for an organic farm. The target area right now is in Iligan City where more than 200,000 IDP are crowded in already filthy evacuation centers.

The evacuees badly need these to begin picking up their lives. Relief goods will never be enough. Reconstruction must begin now. Please help us again in anyway you can. 

God bless and your family and the rest of CDR.


Please make a generous contribution by, credit or debit card on our web site.  It is safe and Secure using PayPal.   You may also send a contribution to CHRISTIAN DISASTER RESPONSE   P O BOX 3339  WINTER HAVEN, FLORIDA 33885-3339

Thank you for caring and sharing.

We have shipped thousands of meals, soap and clothing to Southern Haiti, where Hurricane Matthew caused major destruction and loss of live.

Following the Hurricane the other side of the country was flooded.   CDR along with a partner ministry sent a team to conduct medical clinics, share the Gospel and baptize 14 new Christians.

Two of our volunteers took a trailer load of New Blankets, soap,  Recovery Kits, DVDs of the Jesus Film and other Gospels Stories along with Bibles in a Middle Eastern Language.  To our partners CCM/Eagle Missions, in Fort Mill, SC.  To be added to others supplies and shipped to an un-named country.  Name withheld for security reason.

While all of this was going on, we moved our warehouse to:

Continued Support and Relief to Victims of Hurricane Matthew and Haiti Flooding

CHRISTIAN DISASTER RESPONSE continues to provide relief to the victims of Hurricane Matthew and the flooding in Haiti. Volunteers and support urgently needed!

Since the Media goes on to other stories after a major disaster occurs, people think that all is well with those affected by the disaster. Nothing is further from the truth!

The recovery efforts can go on for months even years.

CHRISTIAN DISASTER RESPONSE is still providing assistance to the victims of Hurricane Mathew and the Flooding that occurred the next month in Haiti.   Conditions are still very bad. Thousands have no food, since all lifestock and crops where washed away.  They are relying on Organizations like CDR to provide them with urgently needed food, clean water and medical care.  Every few week we ship food and other relief supplies, that are distributed by local churches in the most affected areas.   However we must have your prayerful support to continue to meet urgent needs.  Your prayers and financial support REALLY DO SAVE LIVES.  Our next volunteer team departs for Haiti Febuary 9th. Please consider helping the response effort by volunteering and or making a contribution.  You may contact us for more information on the Haiti response.


CDR Update on Haiti and Current Needs

Dear Prayer Partner

I trust you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  However that’s not the case for thousands of families in Haiti affected by Hurricane Matthew and later by wide spread flooding in the in the Cap Haitian area.   I met with Church and community leaders while in Haiti and CDR immediately provided emergency assistance in two of the areas in greatest need.  However much more assistance is needed to prevent wide spread sickness and death.

We are preparing an additional shipment of urgently needed relief supplies.  Gifts of the Heart Recovery Kits, Food, water purification equipment and medical supplies.   We also hope to ship children’s clothing and special treats for Christmas.   Please pray about helping CDR provide a safe, healthy and Joyful Christmas for the many children suffering from the effects of the Hurricane and Storm.

You can make a real difference in the lives of these hurting people.  IN-Kind and financial donations are needed.  You can make a safe contribution on our web site or send a check to Haiti Relief CHRISTIAN DISASTER RESPONSE PO BOX 3339 WINTER HAVEN,FLORIDA 33885-3339.  Please call if making an In-Kind donation, 863-967-HELP(4357).
