Typhoon Haiyan Webinar with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy

Typhoon Haiyan is one of the worst disasters to hit the Philippines in decades. One month after the Super Typhoon made landfall, killing more than 5,000 and causing billions in damages, immediate needs are being addressed. Now assessments are being made about the known long-term needs, and the needs that may emerge in the months and years to come.

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy and the Council on Foundations hosted this webinar to hear from NGOs working on the ground in the Philippines, funders and philanthropic leaders.
