How to Help Philippines Typhoon Victims

How to Help Philippines Typhoon Victims

Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) has left millions of families and children in need in the Philippines.  As many as 2.5 million people require assistance. Governments around the world have pledged to help and the Pentagon has also dispatched an advance team of 90 marines and sailors.  In addition, U.S.A.I.S. has pledged emergency shelter and 55 tons of food.  Below are some organizations that plan to provide relief to the victims of the typhoon.  If you know of other organizations who are on the ground helping, let us know.
