Mormon Volunteers Mobilise After Typhoon Lando

The worst storm to hit the Philippines this year brought a trail of destruction in Northern Luzon. Typhoon Lando lingered on land close to a week as it weakened before finally exiting.

LDS Charities, the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, lost no time in deploying Kenneth Lee and Jairus Perez to assess the situation in order to mount an emergency response. 

Close to a thousand individuals sought shelter in 37 chapels or meetinghouses as Lando pounded on their homes with water levels rising.  Meanwhile, all missionaries of the Church were safe and accounted for.
