Philippines National Emergency
Originally, the Kauai Filipino Humanitarian Society had partnered with the ABS-CBN Foundation to schedule fundraisers to assist with the recovery of the 2013 Bohol earthquake (7.2 in magnitude) that has destroyed many parts of the Visayas. It was our plan to raise funds to send aid to those in need of recovery.
But unfortunately, the entire Philippines have been struck yet another devastating blow by way of Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. Current estimates of casualties from Haiyan are estimated to be well over 10,000 in one city alone! Buildings, homes and even shelters have been demolished. And as current news reports has stated, the people of the Philippines are getting more and more desperate as supplies and food runs out.
The Kauai Filipino Humanitarian Society will be doing our part and will be hosting local fundraisers here in Hawaii, and as mentioned, we are partnering with ABS-CBN Foundation to help render aid to the Philippines. And now we are extending the relief efforts online!
The K.F.H.S is imploring fellow Humanitarians online to join in our efforts to raise funds to aid the people of the Philippines. You can send donations of ANY amount through this GoFundMe campaign and all monies contributed goes directly to the ABS-CBN Foundation to help all those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We would welcome even a penny. Every tiny bit helps!
