We are launching an emergency response to help survivors of Typhoon Yolanda—possibly the strongest storm in recorded history—after it slammed the Philippines, Nov. 8, 2013.
It is estimated that over 10,000 people are dead in just one city alone. Some expect that millions will need basic aid during the still-unfolding rescue and recovery process. The Philippines is reeling from this disaster and the recent 7.2 earthquake. They are in desperate need of our help.
The storm’s strength was equivalent to an extremely powerful Category 5 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 195mph and gusts up to 235mph. It is far more powerful than Hurricane Katrina was before it struck the U.S. with devastating effect in 2005.
Your donation will help provide vital relief to children and families devastated by Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines. For as little as $24 you can provide essential supplies like a blanket or mosquito net. Just $33 can supply clean water and hygiene kits for a family. A donation of $184 can give a family emergency shelter.
Our goal is to reach $15,000 by December 20 2013. If you are planning to donate, please do so now so that we meet the deadline. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers! Hope is on the horizon, and helping in this fund will go a very long way for the families.
