Typhoon Bopha has devastated communities across the Mindanao region of the Philippines; 300 people have perished and over 200,000 are in evacuation centers. Asia America Initiative in partnership with local officials, community groups, military logistics teams and youth volunteers is conducting ongoing relief in the most hard to reach areas where roads and bridges are destroyed. Help us provide food, medicine, hygiene, blankets for 5,000 families with close to 15,000 infants and children.


Typhoon Bopha is party of an ongoing cycle of natural disasters caused by climate change that has severely affected the 100 million people of the Philippines, covering all regions of the country. More than 20 million survivors of Typhoon Bopha have had their communities severely affected with loss of homes, power, roads, bridges, clean water and food supplies.


This project of Asia America Initiative is targeting 5,000 families or 25,000 persons including some 15,000 infants and children in some the most damaged and hard to reach areas near Iligan in Mindanao. AAI's staff is equally Christian and Muslim in this highly diverse cultural area and has the ability to coordinate volunteers and reach some of the most difficult areas of the region. We have enthusiastic cooperation with community leaders, local officials and youth volunteer organizations.
