Three months after Typhoon Haiyan devastated areas of the Philippines, the communities living in the disaster zone still face daily challenges and are struggling to make their way back to normalcy.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, please let’s express our love for the Philippines, and commit to being part of the healing process.  In the wake of the Typhoon, the Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide distributed approximately 1,000 food packages that fed families of 6, and mobilized collaborative efforts for volunteer medical attention in hardest hit areas in Leyte and Eastern Samar.   Basic relief supplies, such as food and water, medical, and shelter supplies are still in dire need. 

This year, the Foundation has a goal of $10,000, to provide basic relief supplies.  

Please consider donating during this critical time. With your help, we will be able to enhance the lives of the affected communities in significant ways.
