Brother's Brother Foundation is working with the Philippine American Medical Society of Western Pennsylvania to provide assistance to victims of super Typhon Haiyan, which hit parts of the central Philippines overnight, leaving devastation in its wake.
The groups are asking for donations to assist with the shipping costs for supplies to help typhoon victims, and 100 percent of the donations will be used for relief purposes.
Checks can be made to Brother's Brother Foundation/Philippines Relief, 1200 Galveston Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa. 15233, by calling 412-321-3160 or going to www.brothersbrother.org.
According to news reports, more than 3 million people fled the typhoon and so far three deaths are reported. The typhoon, known locally as Yolanda, hit land early Friday and is being called the strongest typhoon in the world this year.
Both Brother's Brother and the PAMS have sent medical assistance and volunteers to the poorer parts of the Philippines for more than 30 years.
