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.

Solution

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

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.
