GoAbroad.com, in conjunction with the GoAbroad Foundation, continues to provide direct relief to Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) survivors in Tacloban City, the location of GoAbroad.com’s Asia headquarters.

The GoAbroad.com offices in Tacloban have acted as a media, refugee center, and relief staging site since the storm. Tech rooms have been turned into dormitories, editorial rooms into food banks, and the gym is a living quarter where some team members are residing and assisting with the relief effort.

“GoAbroad.com has been married to this city for over a decade,” said Founder and CEO, Troy Peden. “We have a unique opportunity to provide relief on the ground to a community that has become our home.”

“GoAbroad.com is a meaningful travel company with a mission and our staff are equipped for the challenges we now face,” Peden explained. “You may not see Tacloban City in the news for much longer, but we will be here and we are committed to doing whatever we can to help with the road to recovery.”
