LA Communities Raise Funds For Typhoon Victims

Organizations in Southern California are joining forces to organize efforts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. 

All throughout Southern California, people are joining forces to organize efforts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

USC Filipino student organization, Troy Philippines, started a fundraising push on campus to support the people impacted by super typhoon Haiyan.

Other organizations such as Team Rubicon, the National Alliance For Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), Philippine Disaster Relief Organization Team and the Filipino Christian Church in Westlake are also helping raise funds to support the thousands of Filipino victims affected by the devasting typhoon three days ago.

Team Rubicon is a disaster relief group in El Segundo created by two Marines in 2010 that sent aid to victims in Haiti.

It has now sent a search-and-rescue team to the Philippines called "Operation Searchbird."

The team consists of 15 trained people on an eight day medical search and rescue mission.

More than 10,000 people have been killed by the typhoon and many others are still suffering injuries.

Food, water and medical supplies are in short supply.

If you would like to donate to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, visit Team Rubicon at
