“The sheer scope of the damage caused by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) is so massive that we have to respond on multiple fronts in multiple areas, with as much immediacy and as large a scale as possible,” FAJ noted in a press release.
Typhoon Haiyan is one of the most powerful storms ever to hit land. The storm struck on Nov. 8. As of this morning, the death toll had reached 5,240 with 1,613 people missing and millions displaced, according to the Wall Street Journal.
FAJ encourages those with the means to make monetary donations and has released a list of organizations that will provide relief and aide to victims at a micro-community level. When making donations, indicate that the money is for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. See the list below.

ABS-CBN FOUNDATION – SAGIP KAPAMILYA
Accepting relief goods and cash donations, with drop-off points nationwide: Cebu, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro and Davao
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams have traveled by car, boat, plane, and helicopter to reach some of the areas that were in the center of the storm’s path—northern Cebu island, eastern Samar island, Panay Island, and western Leyte province—in order to evaluate the damage in the area and the medical needs of the populations.
Oxfam aid teams are on the ground in the Philippines and reporting urgent needs of food, clean water, medicine and shelter. Communication lines between some provinces are cut and many areas are experiencing total black outs. Thousands are feared dead, and local emergency food stocks are dwindling.
