Donate today to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines

"The level of destruction we're seeing reported is absolutely staggering," said High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. "Although UNHCR's work is usually focused on conflict-related situations, the exceptional nature of this tragic situation requires all possible efforts to get help to people in need, and we will play our full part in the common response to assist those affected."

Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the central islands of the Philippines on November 8, 2013, is one of the strongest storms ever recorded. More than 9.8 million people in the country are in need of emergency assistance, with over half a million displaced from their homes.

After moving across the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan made its way across the South China Sea, making landfall in Vietnam on November 11, 2013. More than 700,000 have been evacuated from their homes.

UNHCR, along with other international agencies, is working closely with the Government of the Philippines to reach those affected by the super typhoon, as the number of reported casualties continues to rise and access remains a challenge in many areas.

UNHCR is urgently coordinating an airlift of emergency supplies for distribution to the millions of people still in need in the areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Lifesaving supplies include: plastic sheeting, blankets, bedding, clothing, jerry cans and kitchen sets.

Please make a donation today and help UNHCR continue to provide emergency relief to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
