The Philippines, the country so dear to our hearts, has been hit by a category 5 typhoon Haiyan (also known as Yolanda in PH).  It’s really heartbreaking to see the widespread devastation the typhoon has inflicted to such a beautiful country. Today we appeal to your kindness, let us all #HelpHaiyanVictims and be a shoulder to lean on for the Filipinos!

 

How can you help?

International Rescue Committee (IRC). The IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. The organization has deployed an emergency team to the Philippines and launched an immediate fundraising appeal in response to Typhoon Haiyan. Donate here >>

Doctors Without Borders. Doctors Without Borders works in nearly 70 countries providing medical aid to those most in need regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation, and are always involved in disaster situations with crucial medical care. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) emergency coordinator in the Philippines Dr. Natasha Reyes describes the devastation brought by Typhoon Haiyan and what the medical needs are now.

sobrang nakakaawa...coz they queued for 2 to 3 days (night & day) at tacloban airport without food and water...they were also exposed to rain or shine because there was no tent or temporary shelter for them while waiting to board the C130....where is human rights here?

@ Alberto Casim: Blaming anyone in this kind of disaster is definitely not helping anyone. You're just starting to dare somebody to throw another harsh words to begin the dirty conversation. Do I also have to remind you that Miss Patti Austin who composed a #HelpHaiyanVictim team is from the rich country? Shame on you! for throwing that shame blame comment. Grow up little Boy!
