Google-Crisis-Response

To help victims and the ongoing rescue efforts in the Philippines following Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), Google.org’s Crisis Response team has just launched a support site. The site allows people to make contributions through the American Red Cross, UNICEF, and the World Food Programme, and also provides news updates, a crisis map showing evacuation centres and other resources, and a tool to report information about a missing person. 

Typhoon Yolanda first touched down in the Philippines as the strongest tropical cyclone on record on November 7 and evacuation and rescue efforts continue with officials putting the death toll at as many as 10,000 or more people.

Google.org’s Crisis Response project is an effort that provides those affected by natural disasters and humanitarian crises with online tools and resources much like the page it just launched today for Typhoon Yolanda. You can donate now and help with relief efforts in the Philippines on Google’s site here.
