Relief International's Rapid Emergency Deployment (RED) Team has been stationed in the Tacloban area staffing a city hospital and running two mobile clinics. To date, we have provided medical treatment to more than 3,700 patients. Additionally, our team has addressed the psychological well-being of over 500 people to help them heal as they rebuild their lives in the aftermath of Haiyan. Relief International is now preparing activities to focus on Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), shelter, and livelihood recovery.
Millions have been affected by this disaster and a long road of recovery still looms ahead for many families. Your continued support allows our team to reach more survivors.
Our team would like to extend a big thank you those who have already joined us in support! Together, we can continue to help families recover and rebuild from disaster.

As you read this, Relief International’s Rapid Emergency Deployment (RED) Team is on the ground in the Philippines providing urgent medical care to families in some of the hardest hit areas such as Tacloban. Access to healthcare is a top priority as key infrastructure, such as hospitals, has been destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan.
Currently, RI has 22 medical personnel from the U.S. working with local staff to address the primary medical needs of survivors. In addition to providing critical health support, our team is also working with communities and preparing activities to address urgent water, sanitation, shelter, and livelihood recovery needs. Relief International’s efforts in the Philippines would not be possible without the generous contributions and assistance from our supporters, friends, and partners.
RI staff, RED Team volunteers, and families in the Philippines thank you!
