The US-Philippines Society is asking you to join in an urgent humanitarian effort to provide medical assistance to thousands of families displaced by the ongoing violence in Marawi. We also look forward to your support for the longer term effort to rebuild housing, schools and to restore livelihoods.

With your assistance, we can help alleviate pain and suffering, and prevent the outbreak of disease in evacuation centers. Over 11,500 pregnant women evacuees and 7,000 births have been reported. Upper respiratory tract infection and acute respiratory illness, malnutrition, and cases of cholera have been diagnosed among the displaced.

Your donation will support the work of a mobile medical team led by physicians of the Makati Medical Center in partnership with the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF), the US-Philippines Society and the Philippine Humanitarian Coalition. PDRF is an effective and proven non-governmental charitable organization in the Philippines.

Please make your tax deductible online donation here.  Donations by check payable to the US-Philippines Society may be mailed to 1712 N. Street NW, Suite 301, Washington, D.C. 20036, with the notation “Marawi Relief.” Corporate donations are also welcomed. Please contact Executive Director Hank Hendrickson at exdir@usphilsociety.org for more information.

The US-Philippines Society and the Philippine Humanitarian Coalition are 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.

Thank you for your support!
