Typhoon Haiyan

In the wake of Supertyphoon Haiyan, here are some events, organizations, and resources to keep in mind. As the homeland struggles with this (un)natural disaster and the legacy of governmental corruption in the Philippines, it’s incredibly important to make sure our donations and efforts go towards organizations that will directly help the people most affected in the Visayas.

Local Events in San Diego:

International and National Organizations:

  • National Alliance for Filipino Concerns – At this time, NAFCON will assist in the direct transfer of MONETARY donations. Your donation will be sent directly to Bayanihan Alay sa Sambayanan or BALSA (People’s Cooperation for the People), a national grassroots relief and rehabilitation organization composed of broad church-based organizations, schools, disaster response NGOs, and individuals, working with victims of disasters in the Philippines. Please, make online donations at www.nafconusa.org.
  • Damayan Migrant Workers Association – To ensure that the survivors of the Typhoon Yolanda receive the immediate help that they need, the Sagip-Tulong sa Pilipinas (STP) Relief Fund Campaign is only accepting monetary donations (no in-kind donations please). Major credit cards are accepted. Donations are processed through DAMAYAN Migrant Workers Association, an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New York City.
