Praying for the Philippines
Super Typhoon Haiyan/ Typhoon Yolanda has claimed the lives of over 10,000 people in the Philippines, and is continuing to make its way through China and Vietnam, claiming even more lives and leaving a path of destruction and millions of dollars worth of damages.
We are sending our positive thoughts and prayers to our Sisters nationwide who have been directly affected and/or have loved ones in Asia who have been affected by this typhoon.
Although there are many who survived this disaster, these people have lost everything they have, including their homes and families. Below is a small list of the many organizations that you can donate to in order to help these survivors.
As an Asian American Interest sorority, we want to show our support in the effort to help the Philippines. Whether it's raising funds or even building awareness in order to help the survivors, every little bit helps. If you would like to participate, here are a few organizations in which do so:
The American Red Cross
The Philippines Red Cross
World Food Programme
In addition, Google has set up a person finder for those who cannot find their loved ones or would like to post information about someone.
