Supporting relief efforts in the Philippines

As many as 10,000 people are believed to be dead in the Philippines after Super Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the country almost two weeks ago. Haiyan was the strongest typhoon (which is the same as a Hurricane) ever recorded. With sustained winds of over 300 kilometres per hour, thousands of homes and villages were washed away.

Early estimates of the economic cost of the storm are well over $15 billion dollars (USD). Many
people are desperately in need of food, clothes, clean water and basic living supplies. In the central Philippines, the hardest hit region, millions have been displaced and many are being forced to live in crowded communal shelters and temporary settings.

They need everyone’s help to get back on their feet and EC Vancouver, as a small United Nation itself, is asking for every staff member and student to donate whatever you can for our relief fund for the Philippines.

All the donations will be given to the Canadian Red Cross’ Typhoon Haiyan Fund. The Canadian government will match all donations until the 8th of December, so anything you contribute will be doubled.
