Support Philippines Disaster Relief
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the Philippines on Friday, November 8th and destroyed entire villages and cities with huge waves and sustained winds over 150 mph.
The Center for Community Transformation (CCT) is a Filipino non-profit organization. CCT has worked for over twenty years to empower and holistically transform the lives of the urban and rural poor across the Philippines. In Visayas, the region hit hardest by the typhoon, CCT has 47 branch offices, serving over 24,000 individuals and their families. CCT also works extensively in Mindanao and Luzon, regions that also suffered serious human casualties and property damage.
While it is too early to know the full extent of both the storm damage and relief needs, CCT is already mobilizing to provide immediate relief and subsequent redevelopment assistance to the people and communities it already knows and serves.
CCT's U.S.-based micro enterprise development partners - HOPE International, Five Talents, PEER Servants, and endPoverty.org - are assisting CCT by appealing to our supporters for their prayers and financial contributions in support of CCT's relief, recovery, and rebuilding operations.*
