BENEFITING: Save the Children
Millions of vulnerable children are at risk in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. More than 300 miles wide – about the distance from Boston to Philadelphia – the typhoon left a deadly path of destruction in its wake. Save the Children is on the ground distributing emergency kits for children and families who have survived the typhoon, including household and hygiene supplies, clean drinking water, cleaning items, temporary school tents and education materials.
Save the Children has been working in the Philippines since 1981, responding to dozens of emergencies across the country. We have mounted large-scale emergency responses to Typhoon Washi in 2011, Typhoon Bopha and Manila floods last year and most recently to Typhoon Utor in September 2013.
We need your support to help us protect vulnerable children and provide desperately needed relief to families in the Philippines, Laos and Vietnam.
