Anakbayan Silicon Valley is working with NAFCON, The National Alliacne for Filipino Concerns, to help victims and survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. NAFCON* is collecting monetary donations through its Bayanihan Relief and Rehabilitation Program, which will provide both direct aid and long term community change. 100% of proceeds will go directly to those affected through NAFCON's partner in the Philippines, Bayanihan Alay sa Sambayanan (BALSA), a network of churches, NGOs, schools, and organizations that know the needs of affected communities best.
Please consider donating to our relief efforts online at nafconusa.org. For more information, please contact us at 415-333-6267 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
