Private individuals, community groups and other non-government entities are advised to primarily consign their non-medical, in-kind shipment directly to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), which allows the granting of duty and tax exemption.

Please list the recipient/consignee to be:

Department of Social Welfare and Development
(Attn: Typhoon Yolanda Relief)
Field Office VII
MJ Cuenco Ave. corner Gen. Maxilom Ave.
Cebu City
Tel. No: +63-918-930-2356

The use of door-to-door delivery services are encouraged to ensure that donated items are immediately received, repacked and distributed.

Should the donor wish to consign their shipment to other organizations or foundations, the shipment may still be coursed through the DSWD. The intended organization must be specified in the consignment details, as follows:

“The XYZ Foundation, c/o DSWD,
Constitution Hills, Batasan Pambansa Complex,
Quezon City 1100

Please contact your preferred door-to-door service provider. Cargo and shipping fees will apply.

A deed of donation may be required for the entry of donated goods to the Philippines. Please contact your cargo forwarder/shipper to confirm. Details on how to get a deed of donation notarized at the Consular Section of the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo can be found at
