Muslim saves filipina from yolanda

Operation Saving Grace

An incredible story about how 31-year-old Canadian Houssam Hammoudi went to save his girlfriend from the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, married her and got her the help she needed.


Houssam said he was able to contact Mary Grace’s  brother, Nathaniel, a few days later and was told that Grace, the mother, was in  a coma and that Mary Grace’s son John Allen had a broken wrist.


“When I was looking for Mary Grace, all they were  telling me was that she was okay… I have to see it with my own eyes,” he said.


A week later, on Nov. 14, Houssam arrived in Cebu after  taking a direct flight from his hometown Montreal.

Canadian rescues Filipina fiancée from typhoon; marries her

CEBU CITY, Philippines — Yes.

This word was repeated three times by 31-year-old Canadian Houssam Hammoudi  when asked by the Imam, a Muslim priest, if he was accepting his Filipina  fiancée Mary Grace Acojedo, 22, to be his wife until the day of judgment.

The two were wed in a simple Islamic ceremony inside one of the private rooms  of a private hospital in Cebu City, more than a week after Hammoudi rescued  Acojedo, who was severely injured when supertyphoon Yolanda (international name  Haiyan) devastated her village in Ormoc City in Leyte province; and literally  carried her in his arms to safely bring her to a hospital here.
