Disaster Strikes the Philippines

Super Typhoon Haiyan - known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda - hit the islands of Samar and Leyte on Nov. 8, 2013 with winds gusting at up to 235 mph (380 kph). It is one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. 
Losses are extensive. At least 5,235 people have been confirmed dead, and more than 23,500 injured. Eleven million people - 10% of the country's population - have been affected by this disaster.
Basic supplies are badly needed. Many communities were completely destroyed due to the winds and massive storm surge. As such, Jolkona's 2013 holiday campaign is focused on providing clean water, food, shelter and medicine.
Jolkona is responding - we're dedicating our Season's Givings holiday campaign to the Typhoon Haiyan survivors.

In collaboration with Peace Winds America (PWA), a Seattle-based nonprofit organization, Jolkona's donors will fund the emergency response underway in the Philippines, including water, food, shelter and hygiene/medical supplies. PWA has extensive experience and knowledge of Southeast Asia; relief efforts will focus on the devastated parts of Samar and Leyte Islands, Palo Leyte and the Western Visayas (Cadiz and Bacolod City). Together, Jolkona & PWA will ensure that your donations have a direct and positive impact. 

PWA and its partners on the ground will be providing families with rice, canned food and dried fish, cooking oil, water and water purification tablets, bedding supplies, hygiene kits, tents and plastic sheeting.  

Throughout December and into 2014, Jolkona & PWA will continue to support the region's ongoing recovery and rehabilitation by providing semi-permanent shelter, fishing and agricultural support, community disaster education and child counseling services.

Please note that 100% of your donation (less the credit card fees) will go toward providing relief efforts and supplies. Find out more about PWA here:
