Typhoon Haiyan Relief Project
Typhoon Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda, was one of the strongest tropical typhoons ever recorded. It devastated portions of Southeast Asia on November 8, 2013. It caused catastrophic destruction in the Visayas region of the Philippines, particularly Samar and Leyte.  According to UN officials about 11 million people have been affected, many of them have been left homeless.
 
The Rotary Club of Greater Chino Hills organized a relief project to collect clothes and household items and ship these to the Rotary clubs in the typhoon ravaged communities in the Visayas. The club sent about 50 large boxes to the Rotary clubs in the Philippines for distribution to the community.
