The NBA and the NBA Players Association have made a second $250,000 donation toward relief efforts in the Philippines, this time to World Vision.
The Associated Press reported that World Vision said it sent a flight Monday to Manila that included 5,000 blankets and 3,000 tarpaulins to be used to help survivors build temporary shelters following Typhoon Haiyan, which may have left thousands dead.
World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization, said there are nearly 400,000 people affected by the disaster.
The league has been working with the organization in various efforts in the region since 2009.
The NBA and the Players Association made a joint $250,000 donation to UNICEF on Sunday.
The coach of NBA champions Miami Heat, Erik Spoelstra whose mother is from San Pablo City in the province of Laguna which is south of Manila, has also been helping raise donations for the country which has been devastated by the horrific super typhoon that cut a swath of death and destruction through the Visayas and Mindanao with Tacloban City the hardest hit.
