Philippines, just 4 weeks ago was hit by a devastating earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2, depleting most emergency reserves the country had. Now the Category 5 Typhoon has swept away villages, ravaging coastlines, many cities including Tacloban, Samar, and according to the UN, Baco, with a population of 35,000 was 80% under water. 10,000 people reportedly have lost their lives and more than 600,000 have been displaced affecting more than 9.5 million people. Because there is very limited communication outside of the main cities, it is hard to tell still how many people have actually died, injured and affected in total.
Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) has been at the forefront of providing relief in Philippines in past years from the Tsunami of 2004 to the recent earthquake that devastated the country just last month. HHRD has launched the "Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund" to assist after this record breaking Typhoon. HHRD Staff members and volunteers in Thailand and Pakistan are on their way into the devastated areas to provide the necessary emergency relief & recuperation services. HHRD is aiming to provide the most necessary assistance of clean water, food, clothes, utensils, hygiene items and shelter.
There is no food, no clean water, villages are flooded and tangled power lines have fallen on to roads along with debris making it very difficult for aid to reach beyond airports. There are already reports of looting and robberies from relief convoys that have been trying to make it to the victims. People are desperate and the situation is only getting worse.
There is an immense need for food, clean water, medical assistance, shelter and long term rehabilitation as this Typhoon has wiped out infrastructures to the ground.
The people of Philippines need more than prayers, they need your help!

-HHRD Emergency Response Team
Our credible and vetted partners in the region have informed that sudden spurt of riots in four districts of Assam, India; have threatened the identity and ethnicity of local Muslims.
Over 70 persons have been killed and more than 400,000 persons are displaced.
More than 300 villages have been burnt and/or partially affected.
The condition of Muslim Relief Camps for the displaced persons is showing very pathetic picture, due to lack of food, clean water, and other necessary things.
There is acute shortage of food, water, medicines, baby food, etc.
The immediate help and materials required and being purchased through HHRD assistance, include Food Items / Medicines / Bottled Water / Quick Restoration of Hand Pumps for Pure Drinking Water / Baby Food / Mosquito Nets / Utensils / Buckets / Clothes / Temporary Shelters.
It is feared that without urgent action, these camps will become the permanent abode of displaced persons.
The victims need urgent help.
Your contribution will go a long way to offer them solace at this time of great need:
A man once asked, "Choose for me, Messenger of Allah." The Prophet ~ answered him, "I choose AL-Sham for you, for it is the place of the best Muslims, and Allah's choicest are from its cities, and Allah chose His elite (Prophets) from its people. If anyone refuses, may he be ruined and suffer from his own disloyalty, for Allah the Almighty promised to grant me victory over AL-Sham." He added, “Commit yourself to AL-Sham, for it is the best land of Allah wherein are the elite, the best of His servants." (Narrated by Ibn' Asakir).
On another occasion, our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (May Allah SWT Bestow Peace and Blessings Upon him) prayed for the blessing of the people of AL-Sham. Anas Ibn Malik (ra) reports that the Prophet (peace and blessings be on him) looked towards Iraq, AL Sham and Yemen then said, "O Allah! Bring their hearts over to Your obedience and relieve them of their burdens" (Tirmidhi).
As we listen to these virtues of AL-Sham, we are getting these sad news every day for the past one year that humanity is in dire danger in this Land of the Prophets AL-Sham.
Just in the past few days, UNO has reported that some 250,000 people have fled to nearest villages, towns, and borders of Jordan, Turkey, & Lebanon; due to the volatility in Syria's largest city of Aleppo.
Also one of the historic significance of Aleppo is that it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world; it has been inhabited since perhaps as early as the 6th millennium BC.
UNO humanitarian chief Baroness Valerie Amos has called for immediate assistance from the International Community.
Helping Hand for Relief & Development (HHRD) in July 2012, spent $100,000 inside of Syria; through our partners to support more than 880 families with food ration.
