In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines, what is sure to be a long and painful recovery has begun. It was the strongest typhoon ever to make landfall, and the 25th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year. Haiyan caused untold damage to the provinces of Leyte, Samar, Panay, Bohol, Negros and Palawan in central Philippines, affecting more than 2 million people and killing an estimated 10,000 people in Tacloban alone.
Filipinos around the world have mobilized to assist the people of our homeland, and have been moved by the outpouring of solidarity from non-Filipino people. We in the Filipino American community are organizing relief drives and conducting people-to-people aid to help our devastated compatriots. With the Sagip-Tulong sa Pilipinas (STP) Emergency Relief Fund Campaign, Damayan Migrant Workers Association and other partner organizations appeal for generosity and sacrifice to send aid directly to pro-people organizations in the Philippines.
To ensure that the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda receive the immediate help that they need, STP is only accepting monetary donations (no in-kind donations please). All monetary donations will go towards helping the affected communities and the cost of wiring the donations. Donations of any amount are tax-deductible. Any amount that you can give will go a long way.
