We have seen the horrifying images of the devastation brought by the typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) to the Philippines. Haiyan killed several thousand people and affected over 13 million people, including over 5 million children, many of whom face serious protection, health and safety risks. Millions of people were left without homes, are in need of food aid and will require substantial longer-term support.
Join us for a 90-minute Zumba and U-Jam Fitness Event to help raise money to provide relief to the victims of this devastating storm. 100% of the proceeds will go to the victims through NAFCON (Natl. Alliance for Filipino Concerns) Bayanihan Relief Effort.

On Friday, November 22, 2013, the Portland Emergency Relief Task Force for the Philippines formally launches to continue concerted relief efforts for the victims of the super typhoon that ravaged the Central Philippines on November 8, 2013.
The task force, nicknamed PDX Relief, consists of Filipino American organizations, elected officials, multi-racial, and inter-faith, non-profit organizations, business leaders, and representatives of colleges and universities in the Portland area joined together in response to the severe damage of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines.
Lastly, Commissioner Amanda Fritz of the city of Portland and Representative Joseph Gallegos of District 30 in the Oregon State Legislature have also signed up to be members of PDX Relief as impressive proof of their civic engagement and concern for global humanitarianism.
This historic formation of concerned residents of Portland is a testament to the need for solidarity during times of crisis and devastation. The city of Portland is known for its on-going record of civic engagement and volunteerism at its center. This task force of community members, elected officials, faith-based communities and non-profit organizations echoes Portland’s humanitarian record.
