Challenge

Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Typhoon Yolanda) has caused widespread damage and flooding, destroying 70%-80% of buildings in its path. Several of our international partners need help responding to survivors' immediate needs, and our local Filipino nonprofit partners have also asked for help in funding their relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support disaster recovery and relief efforts in response to Super Typhoon Haiyan. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term Haiyan recovery efforts run by local, vetted Filipino organizations.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
