Responding to Medical Needs after Typhoon Haiyan

$79,356 $0
Raised Remaining


Help Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) with their emergency programs to assist survivors of one of the worst disasters the Philippines has ever seen.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In massive disasters like this one, rapid response means the difference between life and death. We expect to see large numbers of people with injuries, and it is urgent that they receive treatment as soon as possible to avoid potentially life-threatening infections.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your support will help MSF send aid workers and supplies to quickly ramp up programs and provide essential medical care and humanitarian relief.

Potential Long Term Impact

The first MSF team, including our emergency coordinator accompanied by 15 medical and logistical staff, arrived in the Philippines on Saturday, the day after the storm struck. Today, we have more than 90 staff on the ground-including doctors, nurses, logisticians, psychologists, and water-and-sanitation experts-and another 50 MSF aid workers will arrive over the next few days.
