Disaster response organizations in five Southern Baptist state conventions have each adopted an area of the Philippines, said Jeff Palmer, executive director of Baptist Global Response(BGR). Seven teams of volunteers already have served, and as many as 10 more could be scheduled in the next month.
"This is a long-term response, and the need is massive. We are initiating large-scale work with communities, local believers and volunteers and will be constantly assessing and gauging the effectiveness of our choices," Palmer said.
...
When that person begins work in mid- to late-February, the number of volunteers from the United States involved in the effort can be greatly expanded, Palmer said.
...
A base of operations for the recovery effort has been established in Cebu City, Palmer said, from which five areas of work are being coordinated.
...
To help with home reconstruction, BGR has designed a housing kit that will put up a small, wood-framed shelter on stilts for about $250, Palmer said. In some locations, construction will be done with local bamboo or local lumber.
...
Palmer voiced gratitude "to all those who have helped in this response, both those who have worked so hard in the Philippines and those who continue to give generously to make this effort possible. He also lauded "the teamwork of those involved and the patience of those wanting to get involved."
"While no response is perfect, we are in a good place to maximize our impact in the Philippines," Palmer said.

Disaster response organizations in five Southern Baptist state conventions have each adopted an area of the Philippines, said Jeff Palmer, executive director of Baptist Global Response (BGR). Seven teams of volunteers already have served, and as many as 10 more could be scheduled soon.
"This is a long-term response, and the need is massive. We are initiating large-scale work with communities, local believers and volunteers and will be constantly assessing and gauging the effectiveness of our choices," Palmer said.
Southern Baptists have donated about $1.3 million for the relief effort through the International Mission Board (IMB) and BGR. The main priorities in the work are repair and construction of houses and schools, along with water systems.
IMB has arranged for a volunteer coordinator to be assigned to the recovery. When that person begins work in mid- to late-February, the number of volunteers from the United States involved in the effort can be greatly expanded, Palmer said.

"With more than 5 million people displaced, either outside or inside the country, the challenges continue to mount as to where to respond," said Jeff Palmer, executive director of Baptist Global Response. "While there are some official sites and camps for refugees, the majority of those displaced are still in makeshift locations, such as with friends or families, or they are just finding anywhere relatively safe to lay their heads. Palmer met the refugee lawyer just two days after the family had arrived from Syria. He was able to share an emergency food packet provided by Southern Baptists through Global Hunger Relief (formerly the World Hunger Fund). "The majority of Syrian refugees are women and children and a few older men," Palmer said. "Husbands, fathers, brothers and uncles stayed behind to protect their precious resources -- unfortunately, many times in vain. They were so thankful for the small amount of help we gave them. We promised we would be back the following week with more. An estimated 2 million refugees have fled Syria for neighboring countries, such as Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq. The prospect of Western powers entering the conflict has dramatically increased the outflow in recent days, Palmer noted. "Our relief and development efforts among the refugees are into the second year," Palmer said. "To date, we have helped mobilize over $750,000 in relief goods to this crisis -- a small amount compared to the ongoing need, but we have been able to direct what we have to some key areas and through some key partners. Working primarily through partners on the ground who can mobilize critically needed items to refugees as well as internally displaced persons, BGR is helping mainly in the area of emergency food packets, hygiene kits, basic shelter materials and some small amounts of medicines through ongoing projects with Syrian refugees in four countries, Palmer reported. "Most of these are the distribution of food packets, hygiene kits and temporary shelter needs to sustain families who literally have walked away from pretty much everything they own," Palmer said. "All of them are done in the love and name of Christ to help these who have no one else to turn to. In the face of such great need, it is hard to only be able to share a small amount, Palmer added. "I thought about the miracle of the fish and loaves. I wondered how God would multiply the small amount of food that each of them received," he said. "I then thought about the generous donors in my home country. Even though many gave small amounts, God had multiplied their gifts and blessed them so that so many this day were blessed. "We ask continued prayer for wisdom and knowledge -- to find the most effective and efficient places and people in need that we can help, to choose wisely," Palmer said.

BGR has released an initial $15,000 in relief funds to humanitarian partners who are focusing their efforts on three areas: Tacloban, which is the hardest-hit area, and northern Cebu and Panay provinces, said Jeff Palmer, BGR's executive director.
