Photo Friday – His New Ruler

Last week Lutheran World Relief staff distributed School Kits to children in the Philippines. The island of Mindanao was hit hard by Typhoon Bopha in December, causing flooding and landslides in many areas that had been damaged one year before in Typhoon Washi.

These simple things — notebooks, pencils, scissors — can make a huge difference in making kids feel like their lives are getting back to normal. The delight on this boy’s face as he examines his new ruler was a joy for us to see!
