Thank you, from the Philippines

"We are relying on the kind people who have given food to us on the island. Without these donations we would have nothing to eat. Thank you for coming to us… We are just trying to survive here."

Hani Pinton, mother of two


On remote Kinatarcan Island, devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, families had been waiting days for help to arrive. In the aftermath of the historic storm, there's no potable water, no electricity, and 75% of homes are critically damaged or completely destroyed.

But because of you, our emergency response team was the first to reach this isolated island. Your generosity made it possible for us to distribute essential food packages to residents in the fishing village of Barangay Langub. Because of you, mothers of newborn babies were given towels and blankets. Because of you, children now have safe water to drink.

See firsthand how your donation is making a difference for thousands of Typhoon Haiyan survivors in this short video.

Watch your thank you video!

Mercy Corps' team of seasoned emergency responders is focused on identifying gaps in assistance and reaching survivors in remote locations who have yet to receive critical help. While we address the immediate humanitarian needs, we are also working to help families begin rebuilding for the long term.

None of this would be possible without your generous support.

On behalf of families in the Philippines, and everyone at Mercy Corps, thank you for being there.

Sincerely,


Dan O’Neill
Mercy Corps Founder
