Molchanovs Freediving Conducting Crowdfunding Campaign for Philippine Typhoon Aid


The folks at Molchanovs Freediving are running a crowdfunding campaign to assist the freediving community in the Philippines in its recovery from Super Typhoon Rai that hit the country earlier this month.

According to Molchanovs:

“We are heartbroken to hear of the devastating impact of Rai with homes and communities destroyed. Molchanovs Freediving was also contacted and told that some freediving schools have been wiped off the map and we are waiting to hear back from members of the freediving community to ensure their safety. We were asked to initiate crowdfunding to help assist the community in its recovery.”

Some of the freediving schools that have been impacted are:

* Freedive HQ
* Freedive Planet
* Kontiki
