Become a disaster volunteer, helping devastated Tacloban residents and communities to rebuild their lives on an operation dedicated to Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief and Recovery in the Philippines. At Kaya, we have been working in Tacloban for 5 years and although everyone is safe, the city has been destroyed. Essential work is needed both immediately in the form of emergency relief and in the long term through sustained recovery. Kaya is helping through fundraising and coordinating volunteer assistance in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda). This will not be a traditional program, but instead an aid operation, that needs driven, tough volunteers for assistance.
Activities on this project will initially focus on rebuilding and clearance to provide homes and structures that protect the people from further storms, as well as education and healthcare support. The project is located on the island of Leyte, about an hour by air southeast of Manila. Program Fees cover accommodation, meals, transfers and a small contribution in support of the program costs.
