With their crops wiped out, fishing boats ruined and homes destroyed, it is the poorest families that have been hardest hit by this violent and deadly storm. Making sure people have clean water, safe sanitation and a roof over their heads is our immediate priority.

Please give what you can today.

Your help is needed

The full extent of the death and destruction is still unclear but one thing is certain – Oxfam is there and we are doing everything we can to reach survivors of the devastating Philippines typhoon.

The coming days and weeks are critical. Hundreds of thousands of people have no shelter, food or water and families are already being forced to drink contaminated water from open wells. The threat of disease and malnutrition is high. The need for life-saving emergency aid is huge. We must act now. 

We have been working in the Philippines for many years and have the local knowledge and skills to bring aid to those worst affected. 

Our experienced aid workers are setting up programmes aiming to reach 500,000 people affected by the crisis.

Our rapid assessment teams have been deployed to Samar, Leyte and Northern Cebu to provide emergency supplies of water, sanitation and shelter.
