Typhoon Haiyan, aka Typhoon Yolanda, disaster relief efforts

OWI - Typhoon Haiyan needs OWI

NaFFAA Region 8 Report – Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda)

By Lorna Dietz, Regional Chair

NaFFAA Region 8’s (Northern CA) board and members are involved with their partnering organizations’ fundraising and relief efforts. We are using our NaFFAA Region 8 Media Group’s expertise in viral communications to highlight ongoing efforts in IMMEDIATE disaster relief efforts that are spearheaded by the private Berkeley-based health and education foundation, http://theoneworldinstitute.org, through Facebook and twitter, doing “shout-outs” about where the latest relief efforts are being done — and asking friends to communicate with [email protected] to point out which areas have not yet been reached and served by relief groups.

QUOTED from Yolanda O. Stern, president of OWI: “Your donations at this time will go for Food and water because we are trying to prevent starvation, thirst and death from both. In a few days there would be an outbreak of cholera. In 21-30 days there will be an outbreak of leptospirosis. Dengue may be imminent. Then children and the old will begin to dehydrate from diarrhea due to  unsanitary conditions and e. coli and other bacterial contamination. Many will die as what is happening in the other shelters.”

Your $100 contribution feeds 40 families per day. OWI buys goods at discounted and wholesale prices, and mobilizes relief missions together with partnering organization, IPI Foundation (whose sister, the for-profit IPI, is renowned as the makers of Omega Pain Killer and Bioderm) and other partners. Hurry and donate via PayPal at www.TheOneWorldInstitute.org. Your tax deductible donations will be matched by a private donor up to $20,000, really badly needed now.
