Super Typhoon Haiyan – help needed now!


The interior of one of the school’s classrooms after the typhoon.

School ext.Super Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines with brutal force. Relief efforts are needed on a massive, long-term scale.

Plenty is being asked to help the village of Alta Vista on the island of Leyte, which is home to about 1,500 people. Every house in the area lost their roof and/or sustained other damage. Alta Vista Elementary School, with 280 K-6th grade students, lost its roof, desks, books and supplies. Other schools in the area are in similar shape and need help. DONATIONS ARE NEEDED NOW TO AID THESE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS. We will help as many schools as we can, depending upon the amount of donations we receive. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP IN A VERY SPECIFIC AND PERSONAL WAY and support the Alta Vista community as they get back on their feet! Choose DONATE in the menu bar and specify “Typhoon Haiyan” using the Network for Good option. Thank you!
