Yolanda / Hainan Relief

The recent typhoon back home in the Philippines brought with it unprecedented destruction of not only property but lives. Many of our kababayan have been left devastated in its wake with entire families wiped out by the storm. The Phil-Am (Philippine American Association) is a Registered non Profit organization and it is part of our mission to extend whatever help we can to our kababayan who are in desperate need. We are starting a donation drive to raise donation to help those most in need. Together we can make a difference, and 100% of the donations are being delivered to the Philippines. Thanks! God Bless!

Please send your donation to Phil-Am association at

Your donation is tax deductible. Thanks! God Bless!

    It breaks my heart to imagine what your family and friends are experiencing in the aftermath of the typhoon devastation. Over my career at Mayo I’ve had the privilege and honor of working with many dedicated Philippino nurses, some my dearest friends. For many years now our family, in lieu of material Christmas gifts, have made donations to our favorite charities in their honor and yours is nearest and dearest to my heart this year. You continue in my prayers as well.
