LITTLE ROCK, AR- Heifer has successfully contacted all its central Philippines staff in the wake of super typhoon Haiyan, and they are all OK. However, officials say it is becoming clearer that their project areas were devastated by the force of the storm.

Heifer now knows that virtually all of their farming families in the direct line of the typhoon-about 4,000 people-will need immediate assistance. Officials say they will supplement the efforts of government and relief agencies with food, water and roofing materials to help meet basic shelter needs.

They have staff trying to reach the affected areas from both the north and the south and expect an initial community-level report within the next few days.
