Super Typhoon Haiyan Relief and Recovery

On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda made landfall in the Philippines, affecting more than 12 million people. More than 30 of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners responded to the disaster offering immediate relief and long-term recovery work.

On the first anniversary of the Typhoon, GlobalGiving offered a 100% match for all donations to projects promoting long-term recovery in the Philippines. See how the matching funds were allocated here.

The following projects still need support to drive ongoing recovery in the Phillipines. As always, each of our partner organizations has been vetted by GlobalGiving, and has committed to sending you updates about how your funds are used. GlobalGiving staff visited many of the projects listed below. Watch the video to learn more about the recovery effort.

Aid to the Philippines after Typhoon Yolanda
by IsraAID
IsraAID's medical team arrived in Tacloban four days after the Typhoon. Since then, the project has expanded to include psycho-social training, and the rebuilding of key medical and educational facilities. Today, IsraAID is based in Ormoc, and is partnering with the municipality to rehabilitate its 200,000 citizens over the next year.
Food and Shelter for Philippine Typhoon Survivors
Christmas week 2017, major typhoon Vinta devastated close to 10 million people in the southern Philippines. Some of these area areas were heavily damaged in 2013 by Super Typhoon Haiyan. Asia America Initiative with our local partners are conducting long-term emergency relief and providing food and water to thousands of affected families. We also provide shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines and other post-trauma services to a target of 30,000 persons, mostly children and the elderly
Low-cost Sanitation For Typhoon Haiyan Survivors
We will provide low-cost pour-flush toilets for Typhoon Haiyan survivors in Tacloban City. The City is totally wiped-out with 95% of the structures flattened to the ground. Safe sanitation is one of the urgent needs but this will be overlooked by international aid since the concentration of the support will be on food, shelter, medicines, communications and to bury the dead. We are experts in sanitation work having supported Typhoon Washi survivors in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan Cities in 2011.
Philippines Recovery Efforts Led by Local Experts
Your donation will go a long way in supporting the physical and personal recovery of the Yolanda calamity victims. The relief drive is managed by the Disaster Response Program, a unit under COSCA, of De La Salle University.
Long Term Initiatives to Typhoon Haiyan Victims
The estimated damage of typhoon Haiyan is 34 billion pesos. With this tremendous devastation, every recovery effort must be sustained to achieve greater impact to victims' lives. That is why CJFI will continue its long term recovery program to reach out more number of victims and gain wider scope of communities assisted. This initiative will cover the municipalities including Tacloban City with coastal barangays facing Leyte Gulf with thousands of fishing families who were badly affected.
Upland Forest Rehabilitation Project
The project of rehabilitating the 150 hectares forest located in Badiangan, Ajuy Iloilo which was damaged by typhoon Haiyan will help revitalize the livelihood of the 295 affected families who have been depending on the forest resources. The scheme of sub-contracting the disaster victims in planting the seedlings and forestry management will help them in their immediate recovery hence improve their quality of life.
Rehabilitation in the Philippines
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the Philippines in November of 2013. It was the deadliest and most massive typhoon in the nation's history. Some 7000 people were killed; over 30,000 injured and some 11 million persons lost their home, land, or were otherwise affected. Included in the destruction were severe damages to rehabilitation medical services in Tacloban area, and WRF is supporting 3 hospitals in the area with equipment to reestablish rehabilitation services for people with disabilities.
