URGENT HELP NEEDED
More than 9.8 million people in the Philippines have had their lives torn apart by Typhoon Haiyan. They urgently need food, water and emergency shelter.
It’s estimated that at least 10,000 people have died, and over 600,000 have been displaced. Power and communication lines are down, many roads are impassable, and airports are out of action.
DEC member agencies and their partners are providing immediate assistance to those affected and will be helping them to rebuild their lives.
