Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) has resulted in the loss of thousands of lives in different parts of the Philippines. The surviving areas are still in need of food and basic necessities; means of communication and power are still being restored. The latest reports tell us that people in affected areas have resorted to looting, forcibly entering shops and destroying ATMs to get food and cash.

Here are some of the ways that we can help victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) victims. You may send in your donations through the following:


1. Dial *143#
