Dutch raise €36m for Philippines aid

The final amount raised by the Giro 555 emergency aid bank account number for victims of the Philippines typhoon last November is €36m, aid group platform Samenwerkende Hulporganisaties said on Tuesday.


A national action day was held on November 18 and donations have continued to come in since then.

The money will be divided up between nine Dutch aid organisations already active in the Philippines.
