I wanted to put a page together where people could go to find out all the organizations they could consider when helping the victims of natural disasters no matter where they strike. I will keep the two most current natural disasters at the top of the news on this page. To find archived relief help opportunities, CLICK HERE.
If you are aware of other organizations helping provide any type of relief, send me an email at [email protected] and I’ll add it to this list (or add it to the comments below and I’ll check them out).
I’m trying to include organizations that are reputable and where you can be more assured that your donations will go to the victims.

TYPHOON HAIYAN RELIEF ORGANIZATIONS
With the recent devastation left behind in the Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan I reached out to friends of ours who are missionaries with FEBC in the Philippines to find out what organizations are directly involved in the cleanup and helping those who desperately need it. If you are so moved to want to contribute financial or other help, here are a few organizations that you can contact to help. Immediacy is critical.
Samaritan’s Purse Samaritan’s Purse supports local ministry partners in the region as they provide physical help to suffering people in Jesus’ Name. We are currently bringing desperately needed relief and comfort to families affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan.
