philippinesWith an estimated 10,000 people killed in the Central Philippines islands and almost 80% of structures in the typhoon’s path destroyed, life is brought to a standstill for hundreds of thousands displaced people. There are many organizations that have already moved into action to raise money and supply help and goods to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Here's how you can help.

How You Can Help the Relief Efforts

Samaritan’s Purse 

With a response team on the ground in the Philippines, Samaritan’s Purse has sent water and nutrition experts to the affected islands. The organization is also providing community water filters, protective tarps, blankets, hygiene kits, and emergency family food packets, and has a team ready to help in Vietnam, which has since been hit as well.

Google's People Finder

Google has launched a tool that helps individuals who are searching for the status of people affected by the storm. Individuals can either search for someone or provide information about someone they know. This is a very helpful resource for those who have relatives in the Philippines and are unable to contact them.

If you know of any other helpful resources, please share them in the comments.
