It’s been almost a month since the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been as much coverage on this catastrophe as compared to others, and it continues to dwindle as time passes. However, the people of the Philippines continue to need support and aid to help them rebuild. In order to spread awareness about this disaster and give a voice to the people affected by Typhoon Haiyan, Emily, our good friend Sara, and I decided to start an ongoing blog called Voices of Haiyan where personal accounts, stories, and photos related to the typhoon can be shared. By sharing these stories, our goal is to spread awareness around the world about the impact of Typhoon Haiyan on the lives of these people.
In addition, we have teamed up with Doctors Without Borders to raise our goal of $1000 by Dec. 15, 2013 that will go towards setting up mobile clinics, inflatable hospitals and addressing the psychological impact of the disaster. Please support our efforts by visiting our fundraising page. The good news is, we’re already more than halfway towards our goal and we aim to surpass it!
Please help us spread the word, and we thank you in advance for your support and donations. You can also visit our Facebook page to share any inspiring stories you may have. Together, we can all help bring hope to those in need this holiday season!
