UPDATE: $6532.11 raised (matching included). Donations are now closed for this cause.
You can still donate to NonProfit Action for future causes here.
It’s now almost two weeks since Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the Philippines. Right now, thanks to your generous donations, NGOs staff are in action in some of the worst-hit locations.
Among more than 13 millions people affected, an estimated 5.4 million children have been impacted, many of whom now face serious protection, health and safety risks.
NGOs are now:
- Distributing food and hygiene packs to thousands of children and their families.
- Providing tents, tarpaulins and shelter packs to at risk families.
- Establishing child friendly spaces and centres of learning so children can continue their education in safe environments.
- Rolling out mobile health clinics so people can receive the necessary care to stave off disease.
Don’t think it’s a situation that is going to be solved soon. And particularly don’t get fooled by the fact media are not talking much about that.
They need your ongoing support and there is so much more to do.
We know you have helped so much already. NonProfit Action has been able to send so far $6532.11 to The Philippine Red Cross through Tom’s fundraising. Thank you.
You can donate using Paypal using the button below (or credit cards if you don’t have a Paypal account, check the bottom left link on the Paypal donation page). Cash or bank transfer are available options as well. The final amount is going to be matched by Tom’s employer, so if you donate €20 they will become €40!
