The Princeton Club of Southern California wishes to extend our deepest sympathy to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. We know many of our PCSC members are looking to help with or donate to the relief efforts, so we have collected several resources below:

  • Solar Energy Foundation deploys Solar Lanterns with mobile phone chargers to partner organizations, including Red Cross. Power and communications have been wiped out in the hardest hit areas, and these are essential tools to bring people to safety, access critical information, and navigate disaster.
    The Princeton Alumni Schools Committee chairs in Manilla recommend donating to this worthy joint-relief effort. Donate here »

  • Doctors Without Borders teams have traveled by car, boat, plane, and helicopter to reach some of the areas that were in the center of the storm’s path—northern Cebu island, eastern Samar island, Panay Island, and western Leyte province—in order to evaluate the damage in the area and the medical needs of the populations.

  • Philippine Red Cross provides disaster management, safety and volunteer services when typhoons hit the region; its staff and volunteers have disseminated early warning messages and safety tips while supporting pre-emptive evacuations during the current conditions. Donate here »

  • American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee is shipping a container of food, shelter, hygiene and medical supplies to the Philippines. The non-profit will also be providing "School in a Box" kits for temporary classrooms for displaced children through its ongoing partnership with UNICEF. Donate here »

  • The Lutheran World Relief Philippines staff are now coordinating with  partners to mobilize staff and resources to respond to the most urgent needs, including providing shelter repair kits, essential household supplies such as cooking utensils and plates, and shipping Personal Care Kits, Baby Care Kits, School Kits and Quilts, which will be distributed to more than 26,000 families.  Donate here »

  • Catholic Relief Services plans to help 100,000 Filipino families (500,000 people) with shelter support, livelihoods, water and sanitation, hygiene, and vital living supplies.  Donate here »
