Recently, Alex Wann, a 2010 graduate of ACU’s A&E Department, was called to help with disaster relief after super typhoon Yolando hit the Philippines. Wann has been working with Samaritan’s Purse in Bolivia with water quality.
Wann will be working at the Samaritan’s Purse base in Tacloban City, which was hit very hard by the storm. His work will include water, sanitation and hygiene, but will focus on sanitation. Wann says “these kinds of interventions are critical in the aftermath of such a disaster to prevent the spread of disease.” The work will be intense and communication will be scarce, but Wann is excited to see what God will do through this situation.
