Humanitarian organizations are organizing aid in the Philippines after the passage of the Typhoon Haiyan. Here in Columbia, some groups are also doing their part.

The MU Filipino American Student Association raised $1.500 in 48 hours to help survivors of the typhoon. The funds will go to World Vision, an international humanitarian organization helping children in need.

MikkoDane Viudez, the treasurer of the Filipino student association, said the crisis brought solidarity in the community.
