Typhoon Vinta Survivors Maintain Their Fighting Spirit!

Asia America Initiative and GlobalGiving wish to thank you for your past donations to this ongoing project providing assistance to Typhoon Vinta survivors to overcome severe storm damages that overwhelmed their communities. 

In December 2017, Typhoon Vinta heavily damaged areas of the Philippines previously destroyed in 2013 by Super Typhoon Yolanda [Haiyan]. Floods, wind damage and mud- and rock-slides have displaced nearly 100,000 people. More than 200 perished. In addition to the Philippine's Central Visayas Region, Mindanao in the southern islands was not spared.  Zamboanga and Sulu Province were heavily damaged by wind and floods. Many houses and schools were destroyed. We continue to assist displaced and severely affected communities with food, clean water and repair of schools. In addition, we partnered with local government and community volunteers to clear blocked drainage systems near the main port in Jolo city. Our goal for 2018 is to further assist 30,000 people, primarily children and the elderly.

Thanks to our GlobalGiving donors, we are able to continue our long term goal of empowering local communities to repair and rebuild.  Our strength is in our multiple partnerships with local, national and international organizations.

This year's GlobalGiving "Little by Little" Campaign will match donations up to $50 at 50%. If you would like to start a new monthly contribution, GlobalGiving will match it 100%! The "Little by Little" Campaign will match donations this week (April 9-13) until funds run out. If you are thinking of donating during this special event, follow our link:
