About Event

In the devastating wake of Typhoon Yolanda, almost 13 million have been affected, with thousands of children forced from their homes and at risk.

Our teams in the Philippines are doing whatever it takes to get essential life-saving supplies to children and their families.

P2,000 can buy two families the essentials to store and purify drinking water for 1 month.

P3,500 can buy a family of five basic household items like mosquito nets, blankets, candles, and children’s clothes.

P5,000 can buy two hygiene kits containing soap, shampoo, toilet paper, toothbrushes, nappies and underwear to keep families clean and healthy.

Three planes with items such as mobile clinics, blankets, new-born kits and a vast supply of basic shelter items have landed, and supplies are being distributed to the worst hit areas.

Trucks loaded with tarpaulins, household goods, hygiene equipment, and fuel are getting through to Tacloban.

Twelve doctors and medical teams are treating the injured and sick in Tacloban and islands off the coast of Panay. Six mobile health clincs are being set up in affected areas too.

Nine senior logistics experts based on Cebu are making sure help gets through to people who need it most.

Field offices are in place, and teams are continually assessing need in Iloilo, Roxas, Tacloban, and the island of Cebu.

More planes are landing with aid from warehouses in Europe, Africa and Asia.
