"Super-storm" typhoon Haiyan (also known as typhoon Yolanda) hit the island nation of the Philippines on Nov. 7-8, 2013, leaving behind a trail of devastation. Possibly the strongest typhoon on record to make landfall, it has affected tens of thousands of people along the coastline. We are greatly concerned for the well-being of those affected by the storm, not just now, but as recovery begins and progresses. We are raising funds to aid in the recovery process. Because assessments of the damage are ongoing we will maintain contact with our associates in the region, who will help us determine how these funds will be most helpful to those affected.
This situation is ongoing, as things develop we will try and update the needed amount for this project, thank you for your generosity and support as we try and help those in the Philippines get their basic needs met.
