On November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the Philippines Islands with high winds and storm surges that destroyed entire villages in its path, resulting in over 10,000 deaths, and billions of dollars in damage that will take many years to rebuild. The suffering of the survivors is truly horrific, as basic human services are unavailable in many coastal areas up to this day. Disaster relief efforts are now focusing on rebuilding homes as well as providing clean water, food, shelter and access to basic sanitation. Many of these needs are extremely urgent, and without the help of people around the world, rebuilding these communities will not be possible.
To support the relief effort, the AREAA Education Foundation and the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) are co-hosting an event/concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 8, 2013. Featured artists include apl.de ap, wil.i.am and taboo of the Black Eyed Peas.
Limited tickets are available through AREAA – please call the AREAA National Office at 760.918.9162 for ticket availability.
