They're supported thanks to you!

We’d like to thank you for your support of Shane and children like him who have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan's devastating effects.

Children with developmental disabilities like Shane are particularly vulnerable after a disaster. They are less able to cope with change and meet their own needs. Before the disaster Shane got the therapy he needed at the Aram Learning studio. But now, the school is closed, leaving Shane and other children with disabilities without the support they need.

But thanks to you, the school's teachers will be able to restart therapy for him. These short-term sessions will give Shane the support he needs until the school re-opens. Thanks so much!

We’ll keep updating you on Shane and his classmates right here on GlobalGiving. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!

School for 30 Disabled Kids Affected by Haiyan
This project has re-opened the only school for children with development disabilities like autism in Tacloban. The school was founded by the mother of an autistic child when she realised that the government wasn't giving their kids the support they needed. The school was thriving before Typhoon Haiyan's, but it was damaged by the storm and now needs extra support. Your donations will pay teacher salaries, fund books, classes, and psycho-social support for children affected by the storm. project reportread updates from the field
