About

MISSION

Our mission is to directly support communities in the Philippines disproportionately impacted by disasters by fundraising and advocating for relief, recovery, and rehabilitation and environmental justice.

WHO WE ARE:

The Disaster Support Network for the Philippines is a community of organizations and individuals that formed on November 23, 2013 as part of the larger National Taskforce Haiyan. Following the disastrous super typhoon, we were moved by compassion to extend support and solidarity to the communities in the Philippines’ devastated areas based on what they determine as their priorities and needs.

WHAT WE’VE DONE:

Collectively, we have been able to raise more than $15,000 for those affected through school fundraisers, community bake sales, dinners, E-waste drives, garage sales, comedy nights, and much more. Members of our Taskforce have also participated in solidarity and health missions in the Philippines.
