Donating to Philippines Recovery Efforts

(back to blog)

In response to the devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan, the Canadian Government is currently matching all funds donated to registered charities. ToursByLocals has just made a $1000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross in support of Philippine relief efforts. We hope that our guides and travelers who are in a position to help also consider donating to the organization of their choice.

We recommend donating to well-established organizations with solid experience working in disaster situations - organizations like the Red Cross, UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders and Oxfam, to name a few. A more thorough listing is provided in the following CBC article: Typhoon Haiyan: How you can help.

We have been in touch with out Philippino guides and are very happy to report that they and their families are all safe and sound.
