While it’s been over a month since Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines, Penn State students are working to ensure the victims continue to receive support for recovery. WPSU’s Kate Lao Shaffner has personal connections to the Philippines. She reports recovery is ongoing, but there’s reason to be optimistic.

Dexter Julio (from Tacloban) and Ep Brion (from Cebu) say these charities and organizations have been active and effective on the ground:

World Food Program -
Red Cross -
American Refugee Committee -
World Health Organization -
World Vision -
