NOW IS THE TIME.                

Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms in world history, has left Philippines in dire condition and in critical need of basic food, water, shelter and medical supplies.  Please stay with Philippines. Help.

The Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide (“Bayanihan”) is responding to and helping survivors  of the devastating typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Bayanihan has partnered with two local grassroots community organizations to coordinate relief efforts:

  • Angiporlosanon in Samar
  • Visayas Mindanao People’s Resource Development Center in Cebu.

We at Bayanihan Foundation Worldwide are humbled by the outpouring of community  support.  In less than two days, we received about $8,000 in unsolicited donations, to bring help to the areas that have been the hardest hit.  In collaboration with Bayanihan’s two local partner organizations, we distributed

approximately 1,000  food packs purchased from the initial funds received.  Each food pack will feed a family of 6 and provide a week’s supply of rice, sardines, noodles, and water.

The task ahead is daunting, but Bayanihan is committed to achieving long-term humanitarian aims. With your support, we can make this happen.
