Yolanda Survivors

MANILA, Philippines – Typhoon Yolanda affected millions of Filipinos. Tens of thousands still want to connect with their families, many of whom are also looking for news about their loved ones.

Damaged communication and power lines make information a rare and powerful resource.  

Rappler needs your help to bridge the gap between someone searching for their family in the affected areas or a survivor trying to reach out.

You can start with the photo album below or on Rappler’s Facebook page.

MovePH and volunteers are taking photos of Typhoon Yolanda survivors who want to get a message out.

Rappler automatically adds these photos to Facebook and Google Person Finder.

You can help reconnect families! Comment, like, share and tag photos of people you know. If you like Rappler’s Facebook page, Facebook will suggest people to tag from your Facebook friends.

As part of an ongoing effort to share information, Rappler is coordinating missing person lists, including official lists from the Department of Social Welfare & Development.  This consolidated list updates Google Person Finder.

We would like to thank Google and  Facebook for the generous and thoughtful support in this time of crisis.
