Relief For Philippines.

Coined as one of the strongest typhoon to ever hit the face of the earth, Haiyan came to the Visayan region of Philippines on Friday, and after the passing, it is said to have caused at least 10,000 casualties. With the struggle to aid the Philippines due to damages the typhoon left, and just matters of days, another storm hit Philippines yesterday.

Countries all over the world are sending in aid to Philippines in the wake of  Typhoon Haiyan. We do what we can most, even the littlest of all, to help the survivors. I encourage you to visit the major disaster relief listed below, and see how you can lend a hand.

World Food Programme
WFP has allocated an immediate $2 million for Haiyan relief, with a greater appeal pending as needs become apparent. The UN organization is sending 40 metric tons of fortified biscuits in the immediate aftermath, as well as working with the government to restore emergency telecommunications in the area. Americans can text the word AID to 27722 to donate $10 or give online. Learn more here.

Red Cross
Emergency responders and volunteers throughout the Philippines are providing meals and relief items. Already, thousands of hot meals have been provided to survivors. Red Cross volunteers and staff also helped deliver preliminary emergency warnings and safety tips. Give by donating online or mailing a check to your local American Red Cross chapter. Learn more here.
