As you know, in the early morning hours of November 9, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines. The equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, the storm displaced hundreds of thousands of people throughout the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and the region’s Pacific Islands. Initial accounts indicate that as many as 10,000 lives have been lost, and authorities and aid groups are struggling to deliver safe drinking water, food, and life-saving supplies to disaster zones.
The Canadian Council for Reform Judaism (CCRJ) will accept donations to be distributed to aid groups working in the affected areas. The Canadian government will be matching all donations received. Please ensure your donation is earmarked for typhoon relief and pay on line here or by cheque, payable to CCRJ, #301-3845 Bathurst Street, Toronto ON M3H 3N2 or by contacting the CCRJ office at 416.630.0375
