Ways to Help Those Affected By Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda

A Few Ways to Help Those Suffering in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda:

1) John Sealey, the Provincial Assistant for Social and International Ministries of the Chicago-Detroit and Wisconsin Jesuits recommends the following way to help those suffering after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda hit the Philippines last week:

“It seems the most efficient way for US-based groups and donors to contribute through a Jesuit route would be the Philippine Jesuit Foundation (PJF) in New York. Make the tax-deductible check out to the Philippine Jesuit Foundation and memo it: “Yolanda Calamity Fund.” The address for the PJF is located at the New York Jesuit Province office: 39 East 83rd Street, New York, NY 10028-0810. The NYK Province has a long historical relationship with the PHI Province. The pdf also contains bank wiring instructions and additional information can be found at www.phjesuits.org. Let’s continue our prayers on behalf of the thousands who are suffering.”

2) The Red Cross is another trusted organization collecting donations for typhoon relief: http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations

3) The Ignatian Solidarity Network has some educational resources as well as other ways you can support humanitarian aid projects: http://ignatiansolidarity.net/blog/2013/11/12/jesuit-network-response-to-typhoon-haiyan/

4) Catholic Relief Services provides several updates about how they are responding to the disaster, as well as multiple ways to donate to their cause.
