Call for Action: Please help the people affected by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines

yolandaAs you all have heard, the Philippines have been hit hard by the recent super typhoon Haiyan. Large parts of Samar and Leyte have been completely leveled, leaving thousands of people cut off from food supplies, fresh water and medical supplies. A lot of people have died already and more will do so if we just stay passive now. People are in desperate need of help – your help.
I have traveled the affected areas intensively with my two friends Chris and Dolph earlier this year. We will always remember the beauty of the country and the hospitality and warmth of their people. We have traveled through Tacloban, a city which has almost completely destroyed. We have made many friends and following the current flow of their updates on Facebook is heartbreaking. It hurts to see the country in such an agony and struggling to get back on their feet. This is the time to stand together as global citizens and act. Please join me and contribute to the ongoing relief efforts of the international community.If you are from overseas, the easiest and best is to make a financial donation to organizations such as the Red Cross or UNICEF. Check out their website – most of them have set up forms which make it super easy to donate. Every single contribution helps. Here are some links I collected:

American Red Cross Donation Form
Deutsches Rotes Kreuz Taifunhilfe
Red Cross Philippines Appeal
UNICEF donation appeal
Huffington Post Article on How to Help 
NBC Worldnews on How to Help

Please help, even it is only a couple of Dollars or Euros. Also spread the word to friends and families. Share it on Facebook and your other Social Media. It can make a difference. Let’s help the great people of the Philippines to get back on their feet. I know they would do the same for us. This is the time for action.

Thanks everyone of you! One World!



… but they still need our help. Please join!

  1. Thank you.

    • Philipp Dukatz

      I just received word from a friend who took the article as final push to donate. She just did so via Red Cross. If it is even only that one, it was worth posting the article. Hopefully more will follow. Stay strong over there!

      • Majority of the relief operations right now are concentrated in Tacloban where the Typhoon hit first but there are still lots of areas that are also affected that need some help. Small group of people are doing their own distribution of good to alleviate the pain with the help of friends and family. This is a trying time for the Philippines but we will get through this, we always have. Of course we could not do it alone, we are very grateful to the international community who have assisted us in this trying times.

  3. Thank you Philipp and thank you World! What happened in the central portion of the Philippines was greatly devastating, but the international community’s response is overwhelming. Thank you so much for all your help. We do appreciate all the effort that’s being done to rescue and relieve my fellowmen. You are an indication of humanity’s triumph. In the end, the Filipino smile will still radiate and reach you.

  4. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all
    of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome website!
