Frmer NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who was born in the Philippines while his parents served as missionaries, is stepping up to help victims in the country devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.

The Tim Tebow Foundation has activated a donation link so people can help those in need. Mr. Tebow has also made the Philippines one of the primary beneficiaries of his outreach programs, First Coast News reported.

Currently his foundation is working with CURE International to build an orthopedic children’s hospital in Davao City set to open next year.

The hospital is one of the few places that survived the storm, but it is unable to provide assistance in the storm’s aftermath, because it is still in the process of being built, the Florida Times Union reported

Mr. Tebow’s organization is also working with his father’s foundation, the Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association, on church building and orphan care in the Philippines, First Coast News reported.

    Was wondering if the hospital made it through and apparently was protected. Sad to hear of all that devastation.
