As you read this, Mercy Corps is deploying emergency responders — including experts in water, sanitation and logistics — to the Philippines. We'll be working with partners on the ground to meet immediate humanitarian needs.

AlterNet Reader, survivors of the typhoon need your help now â–¸

Please make a generous gift to our Philippines Typhoon Response to help deliver urgent, lifesaving relief to children and their families in desperate need.

Over the next days, we will expand our team on the ground as needs require it. But our ability to respond depends on the generous support of people like you.

Mercy Corps has responded to almost every major disaster in the last 20 years, including the Haiti earthquake, Japan tsunami and the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Right now, we're providing aid to refugees from Syria in Jordan and Lebanon. And we have years of experience helping low-income communities in the Philippines.

When you give to Mercy Corps, you're supporting an organization with a 34-year track record of providing lifesaving assistance in times of disaster, and staying for the long term to help families recover and rebuild. Your gift will help survivors of this devastating typhoon — called one of the strongest storms in recorded history — to meet their basic needs and begin rebuilding their lives.

Thank you for your compassion and support.


Dan O'Neill, Mercy Corps Founder
