On November 7th, one of the strongest storms ever recorded pummeled through the Philippines. Super Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) decimated part of the country and the full scope of the damage, both to life and to property, is still unknown.


“I have seen thousands of homes today and you can count on one hand the number that are NOT damaged, the queues for gasoline are unbelievable and they need materials so they can start rebuilding.” – Marc Young

All Hands Volunteers has an ongoing project in Bohol in response to the October 15th earthquake – and we will launch a project in response to Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).

Our assessment team, led by our Director of International Response, Marc Young, is on the ground in Ormoc, Leyte in the Philippines. Given the wide-scale devastation we are seeing, there is no doubt we will launch a project in response to Typhoon Haiyan, or Yolanda as it is known locally. Our assessment team is determining exactly how we will be responding, and where we will be establishing our project and base of operations, but we will share additional details as soon as we have them. 

Thank you,

Erik Dyson  |  Executive Director

    Make a difference— that is, by helping one person, then another, then the community, then the city, then the nation and the world.
