Philippines Typhoon Disaster - IAHV UK to Provide Funding and to Fundraise


IAHV UK is to undertake fundraising for the victims of the Typhoon which has killed and made homeless thousands of people in the Philippines.  IAHV UK will also provide £5,000 of immediate funding.

We are in contact with Philippines
We have made contact with our colleagues in the Philippines and they say they are presently in the process of raising funds, identifying and training volunteers and putting an action plan in place.

They plan to partner with local NGO’s, Gawad Kalinga in particular, for their logistical support.   Top priority is meeting basic needs.  Later, our volunteer teams will go to the affected areas to conduct Breath Water Sound programs (Trauma-relief workshops) and work with the survivors towards rehabilitation.
What they have requested now is funding to answer the immediate need of distributing food and water and then they can put a sustainable long term relief effort in place.

Any help from IAHV supporters in the UK would be much appreciated.

Massive damage by Typhoon Haiyan
Initial reports as at 11 November are that the authorities have said 10,000 people may have died just in the City of Tacloban.  Over 400,000 people have been reported as having to flee their homes to evacuation centres.   Estimates were of massive 195 mph winds and of 5 meter waves.

There are reports of a city of 200,000 where there appears to be no buildings to have survived intact!
