OB PROGRAM FOCUS
(as of August 1, 2015)

Disaster Response Program

Under its Disaster Response Program, Operation Blessing has a three-pronged approach: rescue operation, relief distribution, and rehabilitation.

Our trained staff and volunteers organize and coordinate rescue operations in disaster-stricken areas using our own equipment and tools. We distribute relief goods such as ready-to-eat food items, blankets, sleeping mats, toiletries, and clothing. Medical missions are conducted simultaneously with relief distribution efforts. We are also at hand to help the devastated community to start anew with rehabilitation work through our livelihood programs, clean-up operations and construction projects.
