Fairfield Raises Thousands for Philippine Relief

Fairfield University raised $5,390 during its “Day of Solidarity and Fundraising,” an event designed to help people suffering in the Philippines in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The event, held on campus on November 22, 2013, included an interfaith prayer service, a prayer wall, a radio show, and bake sale. The effort was organized by Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life through the Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN).

On November 8, the Philippines was hit by an unprecedented typhoon, a historic storm that left thousands dead and missing. Many were left homeless and without clean drinking water, adequate food supplies and power.

JUHAN comes at a time when the global need for expertise in humanitarian relief continues unabated.  The initiative aims to further build the capacity for humanitarian training among member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU).

JUHAN was launched in 2008 through a joint collaboration between Georgetown, Fordham and Fairfield Universities on the premise that in addressing the needs of those who are suffering, our academic institutions can be more effective when working together rather than independently. JUHAN efforts at Fairfield are overseen by the Center for Faith and Public Life.
