Help for the Philippines with the work of Hengki Koentjoro

Together with our Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro we started a project to help the victims of Haiyan, the typhoon that hit the Philippines with over 350 kilometres per hour and a diameter of 600 kilometres.

No food. No water. No electricity. Houses and buildings destroyed. Bodies scattered on the streets. Hospitals overrun with patients. Medical supplies running out. The Philippines need the help from all of us. Drinking water, tents, blankets, food and medicines are the most important thing the affected people need now in order to survive. With these photos you can help the victims.

We believe in the Afghan saying: “Small drops make a river.” With only 80 € we can provide one family with emergency aid for one month. For direct help we recommend you our project partner CARE. For more photos from Hengki Koentjoro visit his gallery on Photocircle.
