Summary

Super Typhoon Haiyan - one of the most powerful storms on record - raged through the Philippines on Friday, November 8th. Typhoon Haiyan leveled entire towns and its waters swept away whole homes and their inhabitants. The catastrophic damage and widespread devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan has affected millions of people--at least 600,000 people are now displaced. RI is providing emergency needs and primary medical care to Typhoon Haiyan survivors.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Local police estimate that Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) killed at least 10,000 people in the central Philippines province of Leyte, with coastal towns and the capital region devastated by huge waves. Haiyan destroyed almost everything in its path as its heavy gusts of up to 235 miles per hour tore through the province. Survivors have been left with no lines of communication, power, or shelter. Families are in dire need of food, water, shelter, and access to medical care.

How will this project solve this problem?

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, RI's Rapid Emergency Deployment (RED) Team was immediately deployed to the hardest-hit areas to provide urgent primary medical care to survivors. RI is now scaling up recovery efforts and implementing water, sanitation, and hygiene activities to assist families in Tacloban City and the surrounding region. Our team is providing safe drinking water, hygiene/sanitation facilities, hygiene kits, and hygiene awareness education.

Potential Long Term Impact

RI has a 23 year history of responding to the world's largest disasters across the globe, including the Haiti Earthquake, floods in Pakistan, tsunami in Japan, and the famine in the Horn of Africa. With your support, we can help families in the Philippines survive and rebuild in the aftermath of disaster.
