Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. It tore through the Philippines in November 2013, killing over 6,000 people and affecting 14 million in total. We're working with survivors to help communities rebuild and to take charge of their own recovery. But so much remains to be done, and that's why we need donors like you!
Typhoon Haiyan (known as Yolanda in the Philippines) left wide spread devastation across nine provinces in the Philippines. Survivors lost their homes, livelihoods, and loved ones. Over 6,000 people died. Communities are working hard to pick up the pieces, but they need your support so that they can continue to rebuild homes, restart businesses, feed their families, and take charge of their own futures.
We arrived in the affected area 17 days after Haiyan and we've been there ever since. Our work to date has supported 10,155 survivors by providing emergency relief and investing in the repair and reconstruction of key buildings. We're continuing this work and also supporting local partners to give communities the tools they need to meet their own needs
By working with local partners, we'll achieve concrete outcomes - such as by repairing key infrastructure - while also empowering and mobilising communities to help themselves. With local communities and leaders actively participating, our work will build survivors' confidence and ability to take charge of their own recovery. This will make them more resilient and less dependent in the long term.
