Shoes. Teddy Bears. Old Shirts. Well-intentioned supporters are sending countless goods to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, but what is really needed? Unused products compete on rescue docks with essential supplies like diapers, cleaning supplies, and medicine. With 580,000 people displaced in the Philippines, sending the right goods at the right time is absolutely critical. Good360 will partner with major US donors to direct a rescue package for long term sustainable recovery to struggling victims.
90% of Tacloban city in the Philippines was destroyed during the typhoon. More than 2,500 people died immediately. 580,000 victims survived but remain devastated without the basic necessities. These victims cannot afford to take in unnecessary donations that clog up already damaged logistics channels. They need relief organizations to partner with corporations through the Good360 network to survive these critical weeks. They need rebuilding materials later to reconstruct a new community.
Good360 will communicate with our partner corporations to identify and prepare the most needed donations right now. We will work with international relief NGOs to deliver products for victims once transportation is back up and throughout each phase of Typhoon Haiyan recovery. Your monetary support will help us directly move the supplies from the US to the Philippines.
Long term recovery begins with bridging the gap between corporations, nonprofits, and generous supporters. When other organizations leave, Good360 will stay with the Typhoon victims to rebuild infrastructure. Coordinating a collective effort to send needed products to survivors of the Philippines will sustain recovery for both Tacloban city and rural communities throughout the Philippines.
