Give2Asia, hosted by Mr. & Mrs. George and Barbara Sycip, launched Yolanda: One Year Later Fund last November 17, 2014 at the Villa Taverna located at 27 Hotaling Pl. San Francisco, CA.
A full year after Super Typhoon Yolanda wrought havoc in the Eastern Visayas provinces of the Philippines, Filipino-American community continues to rally in support of those affected. The disaster claimed almost 6,500 lives, caused $2.86 billion in damage, and affected 16 million people.
To commemorate the one-year anniversary of Typhoon Yolanda, Give2Asia has launched the One Year Later Fund in order to provide support for ongoing rehabilitation projects in affected communities in the Philippines. Since 2001, Give2Asia has responded to over 40 natural disasters throughout Asia, providing long-term support at the community level for a minimum of the three years after the disaster.
