Typhoon Haiyan Relief

Super Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest storms ever recorded.  It hit the Philippines on November 8th, making six separate landfalls over five separate islands and 57 cities.  The devastation has been wide-spread.  Nearly 12 million people were impacted.  Over 5,000 people to date have lost their lives, with thousands more still unaccounted for, and thousands of others injured.  2.5 million residents require food aid with most agriculture and fishing in the region destroyed.   Homes, furnishings, schools, medical facilities and crops were all destroyed.

The need is great. Each campus has appointed a Disaster Relief Coordinator <pdf> who will be responsible to coordinate efforts on campus. CUNY’s campaign is multi-pronged: 

a) providing assistance to students and faculty/staff with ties to the region; and

b) raising charitable donations to assist the Philippines in the aftermath of this recent catastrophic natural disaster.

Responding to the horrific devastation in the Philippines, Interim Chancellor William P. Kelly has announced the establishment of a University-wide relief effort to assist the victims and others affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which has left many thousands dead, injured and displaced and areas of the country destroyed in likely its worst natural disaster. >>
