Helping Kids Deal With Trauma from Typhoon Haiyan
 
Beyond the immediate needs, Typhoon Haiyan severely traumatized tens of thousands of children who will, in the coming months, find themselves in evacuation centers throughout Central Philippines. Our books can help them. We want to give away at least 10,000 books to 10,000 child survivors of Haiyan this Christmas, and bring in a team of professionals who will use the books to help them with the trauma of their experience. This will help them move on with a sense of normalcy and hope. project reportread updates from the field
