How To Help Phillipines Super Typhoon Haiyan Survivors
As with any natural disaster, the fastest and most effective way for young people (or anyone) to help is through philanthropy projects to provide support to organizations working in affected areas. You can find information about how to help at http://1.usa.gov/HWstT1. YSA especially recommends our Global Youth Service Network partners, GlobalGiving's Super Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund and ShelterBox.
