The AREAA Education Foundation is dedicated to empowering the Asian American communities through housing.
On November 8, Super Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines with high winds and storm surges that destroyed entire villages in its path, resulting in an estimated 10,000 deaths, and thousands more who are missing. The suffering of the survivors is truly horrific, as basic human services are unavailable in many coastal areas. The devastation caused billions of dollars in damage across 2/3 of the Phillipines' island chains, and it will be a decade or more before the hardest hit areas will be rebuilt.
The AREAA Education Foundation is seeking your support for our fundraising efforts that will provide direct assistance to victims as they struggle to survive in the aftermath of the storm. Relief efforts are now focusing on shortages of clean water, food, shelter and access to basic sanitation, and clearing roads to reach remote areas. These needs are urgent, and our goal is to raise $250,000 before the end of 2013.
