Help Typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines



Families in the Philippines are in urgent need after Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated towns and villages, causing heavy damage from wind and water. Over 15 million people have been impacted and more than 4 million have been displaced from their homes. The damage is widespread and extensive. Officials estimate that the storm destroyed 70 to 80 percent of the area in its path. Your gift will provide lifesaving assistance and support long-term recovery efforts to help families thrive.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Super Typhoon Haiyan left a trail of massive destruction across the island nation on November 8, 2013. Thousands of people were killed and and more than 4 million displaced. In all, nearly 15 million have been affected by one of the strongest storms in recorded history. While we continue to meet families' needs for clean water, sanitation, temporary shelter, and food, we have started long-term recovery efforts.

How will this project solve this problem?

Mercy Corps has a two pronged approach. We're helping survivors of Typhoon Haiyan with lifesaving assistance, focusing on needs for for water, sanitation, shelter, and food. In addition, we're expanding the capacity of local microfinance institutions to help them reach previously unserved populations through new mobile technologies. By donating, you're helping Filipino families meet their basic needs and work towards rebuilding their lives and communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

As we provide lifesaving emergency aid and assistance to earthquake survivors, the Mercy Corps team and its partners will work towards long-term programming - focusing on jobs for adults, recovery of families and communities, and the needs of the children.
