What can you do to help the people in the Philippines in the aftermath of the typhoon that killed thousands?  

The truth be known, it is overpopulation combined with its resultant poverty that kills in “natural disasters” as this super typhoon is called.  Overcrowded low lying areas combined with sub standard structures were the main culprit.  The poor populate these areas and they are the ones who die or are made homeless.

What I would suggest to help the long term improvement of conditions in the Philippines is that you support the organizations and institutions that work to slow or reverse climate change and/or achieve population stability.

Here are a few suggestions but do your own research and make your own educated decisions:
