TYPHOON HAIYAN - One Year Update
A Message from the Senior Vice President American Red Cross International Operations
A year ago, Typhoon Haiyan-one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded-struck the Philippines, leaving behind devastated communities and heartbroken families. Since that terrible day, the American Red Cross and our partners in the global Red Cross network have been hard at work helping Filipinos recover from this deadly storm.
Over multiple visits to the Philippines in the past year, I have seen first-hand the profound impact of generous donations from our supporters. The American Red Cross quickly collaborated with the Philippine Red Cross to provide lifesaving assistance, and we continue working side-by-side, helping recovery in affected communities.
The Philippine Red Cross began work immediately after the typhoon passed, with emergency response teams handing out much-needed items like tarps, mosquito nets and clean water. In those early months, the Red Cross network also began distributing small sums of cash that provided people who had lost everything the flexibility to meet their most pressing needs.
I saw the positive impact of Red Cross cash grants on the lives of survivors on my most recent travels to the Philippines. I met Irene Collera, whose home was badly damaged in the storm. Irene and her husband used some of the grant money they received to start a business, buying coconuts and selling coconut water on the roadside. Now she owns two large coconut stands and has earned enough money to support her family and repair their home. She has also begun saving for a truck and plans to expand her business.
With a helping hand from the Red Cross, Irene and other typhoon survivors are recovering with creativity and determination. In the coming year, Typhoon Haiyan donations to the Red Cross will continue to help rebuild lives and communities through integrated projects, which will focus on infrastructure repair, job generation, water and sanitation improvements, household construction, disaster preparedness and health initiatives.
We are working closely with our Red Cross partners to ensure that we are spending every dollar efficiently and effectively. Because of the generosity of the American people and the dedication of Red Cross volunteers, we continue to care for those in need, help them become better prepared for future disasters, and bring hope, comfort and stability back to their lives.

Incept Founder / Chief Listening Officer to chair upcoming Hope for Haiti Gala in Akron
Incept has been a proud supporter of Cross International for the past two years. This year Jeff White, Founder and Chief Listening Officer of Incept and Eun White, Incept's Corporate Controller are committing their time and resources to chairing a Gala event to be held in May in support of the restevak children of Haiti. Restevak is a Creole word meaning "one who stays with"; in Haiti these children are given or sold to wealthier families and live as indentured servants. The abuse and neglect endured is unimaginable. With the devastation of the recent tragic earthquake, the children of Haiti are at even greater risk as more families will now not be able to care for their own.
Together with Cross International, Incept is choosing to make a difference in the lives of these children by providing educational outlets where they can learn much needed skills to assist them once they are turned out of the homes in which they serve.
On May 7th, at The Hilton Akron/Fairlawn, friends and business associates from the area will come together to help us in this cause. The Gala is a fundraising event that will make a difference in so many lives.
The event will begin with a silent auction and cocktail hour, followed by dinner, dancing, entertainment and a live auction including an African Safari and Carnival Cruise!
