Hands4Others Asks for Help with Relief for Victims of Haiyan Typhoon

Hands4Others (H4O) — a Santa Barbara-based, youth-led nonprofit group working to provide sustainable access to safe, drinkable water for those in need — is responding to critical needs in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

H4O has been monitoring the storm and began dialogue with its implementing partner, Water Missions International, to strategize an effective and appropriate response to the disaster before it made landfall on Nov. 8, said Casey O'Toole, project director of H4O. 

On Monday, he said, H4O mobilized an effort to install two water systems in the critical disaster areas. H4O has already allocated funds to install one system and is asking for help to support the second.

One hundred percent of donations will directly fund the disaster relief project in Haiyan.

— Susan Jackson is a board member of Hands4Others (H4O).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
