In response to the massive destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines on November 7, G Adventures and Planeterra are partnering with Architecture for Humanity to rebuild clinics and schools, and put a shattered country back together. Right now, dozens of relief agencies from all over the world are working to provide the food, shelter, and medicine to those affected by Haiyan, but once the immediate needs are addressed, there will still be much left to do. It will take months, even years to rebuild the Philippines.
How You Can Help
By making a donation today, you’ll be supporting a grassroots network of architects and building professionals who will lend their talents and expertise in parts of the Philippines where their services are most needed and can least be afforded. Architecture for Humanity approaches crisis response in phases. They first assess needs within affected communities and then create a roadmap to provide effective solutions once they’ve assessed the challenges.
Even if you can’t help, someone you know can. Spread the word and tell your friends, your family, your co-workers, and your social networks. (And don’t forget to tag your posts with the #ReliefPH and #GAdvCares hashtags.) The more raised, the more can be done to help.
For more information, visit the Philippines Typhoon Recovery & Rebuild donation page at planeterra.org.
