Penn Philippine Association - Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda

The Penn Philippine Association (PPA) would like to offer our deepest condolences and sympathies to the families and loved ones of those affected by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda and many thanks to all those who have shown support so far.

As a student organization with members both from the Philippines and with family living in the country, we realize in this difficult time that much work needs to be done. We firmly believe in the spirit and the resilience of the Filipino people and pray for their speedy recovery in the aftermath of this catastrophe. PPA would also like to emphasize our availability for any students, faculty and staff to find the resources and support necessary to cope with this horrible disaster. As history has shown, crises on this scale are only overcome as an international community.

All of us look forward to partnering with organizations throughout the area to bolster relief efforts immediately. If you or your group is interested in collaborating toward relief efforts, please contact our board at .
