Dengue in Philippines
Our partner Lendehl Sallidao (in the picture) writes
Please pray for the the Philippines as dengue fever has taken many lives especially children. The Department of Health listed 69,594 cases of dengue fever, a mosquito-borne disease, from January to Aug. 28. We have lost a child in the community where we are helping and also the grandaughter of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Philippines.
We will launch Dengue prevention and treament in my station on September 18 in partnership with Saint Luke's Medical Center. Please pray for the success of the program.
