In November 2013, the Philippines was hit by Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Super Typhoon Yolanda), a devastating tropical cyclone with winds exceeding 185 miles per hour. In the storm’s wake, Samaritan’s Purse deployed disaster response specialists and emergency supplies to the area, but a warehouse was required to safely house the vital supplies.
HOW SPRUNG DELIVERED
Sprung immediately delivered a durable, 40’ x 100’ tensioned membrane structure to Tacloban City, one of the hardest hit areas. The structure sheltered blankets, medical supplies, tarps, hygiene kits, food packets, generators, mosquito nets and water filtration systems throughout the recovery period.
