Here’s why I highly recommend donating to www.nafconusa.org for Philippine disaster relief: NAFCON works with grassroots organizations in the Philippines that organize among the most impoverished and vulnerable communities all over the archipelago, including those impacted by the recent events. They don’t just show up when there is a disaster. They are there year-round, working to empower and mobilize these communities to address the root causes of poverty and exploitation. While there are remote villages that the Red Cross will never see, while the Philippine government hoards much-needed resources, OUR folks will be there at ground level. This is a holistic effort, to not just address the immediate need but also the rebuilding, sustenance, and improvement of these communities. Please consider contributing to NAFCON.
