Help Support Relief Efforts for Typhoon Haiyan
Please join the De Anza community in supporting the people of the Philippines who have been impacted by the devastation from Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), which hit and ravaged numerous provinces in the central Philippines on November 8. Haiyan’s 195 mph winds and huge storm surges killed thousands, displaced nearly 600,000 and affected 9.5 million people across the Philippines, according to the United Nations.
Nearly 4 million of those affected are thought to be children, according to international aid organization Save the Children. Officially, confirmed deaths stood at 2,357 on Thursday morning, Nov. 14, according to the Filipino government.
