Samaritans Purse Philippines


Crisis in the Philippines

Samaritan’s Purse provided relief in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.

In 2013, one of the most powerful Typhoons hit the Philippines. The winds leveled tens of thousands of homes and the storm surge swept up to a mile inland. Typhoon Haiyan displaced at least 580,000 people.

Needing a safe place to warehouse the supplies, Samaritan’s Purse, turned to Sprung to install a 40′ wide x 100′ long classic in Tacloban, Philippines. One of the hardest hit areas.

Please note: A Sprung technician, filmed this stunning video of the hard hit area and the Sprung structure going up.
