How to donate to typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines.


Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally named as Yolanda) devastated parts of the Philippines in an unprecedented levels.  A typhoon so big, it’s the first ever recorded typhoon of this magnitude to make landfall on earth – ever.  10,000 people are feared dead and that number is expected to rise even more.  Dead bodies all around on the side of the streets, under the rubble, in churches and everywhere.  Food and water scarce.  The country needs all the help it can get.

Emergency deployments of relief goods from the USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and many other countries who rushed to help have arrived.  The problem is infrastructure and how they will reach the people who need the relief goods the most.  If you are thinking of donating money, please donate them to these reputable charitable institutions to ensure that the funds will make it to the people who need them.
