Donations can be made to the GoAbroad Foundation, through this official Causes campaign.
Continued support for this area is of utmost importance to GoAbroad.com and the GoAbroad Foundation in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) as we have several friends and colleagues that have been affected by this tragedy. As our colleagues navigate these days and weeks following the storm, we’d like to raise funds in order to help rebuild homes and businesses, as well as provide food, clean water, clothes, and other necessities that were lost in the typhoon.
With the GoAbroad office and staff in Tacloban City we have direct channels in order to support relief efforts in what is considered ground zero of this tragic natural disaster.
All of the U.S. GoAbroad staff have visited these communities and have close connections with many of those affected. While there will be many forms of international aid provided to the Philippines, we can be sure that this cause and these funds will be used to directly aid our friends in the community who have lost everything.
Help us rebuild a community that is truly near and dear to our hearts.
