Resources Available for Hospitals Wishing to Assist Typhoon Haiyan Relief

CHA is encouraging hospitals that wish to contribute to the relief effort or victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines to visit the American Red Cross website. An update on the Red Cross’s current relief efforts — including distributing food, water and relief supplies, as well as working to locate missing family members — is attached. The Red Cross urges those unable to reach loved ones to contact their local chapter of the Red Cross. The American Hospital Association has donated $50,000 to the Red Cross relief effort.

Hospitals are also encouraged to visit the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) website, www.usaid.gov/haiyan, which contains information on how best to donate and links to credible organizations supporting international relief efforts in the country, with additional information on volunteer assistance.
