The Philippines is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire and near the equator. This makes them vulnerable to typhoons and earthquakes. When disasters like this strike, those who are affected by emergencies need help right away. There are many organizations in the Philippines that help. They provide emergency medical supplies and can even assist those living there with shelter and jobs. These organizations also strive to build peace in areas of tension. Many residents of the Philippines struggle making only $2 a day. There are so many impoverished families and children that can’t go to school. While these organizations help to change all of this they still need your help. Here are a few organizations that help better people’s lives in the Philippines. This can eventually help stop the cycle of sickness and poverty while improving education, livelihood, community building and healthcare.

This organization responds to natural disasters quickly helping families rebuild. Over 4 million families in the Philippines live in unsafe and unsanitary conditions.
