One year after the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan, people in the Philippines face a new emergency. We are on the ground with staff and aid supplies across the country where powerful typhoon Hagupit (known locally as Ruby) threatens widespread devastation.

Among the thousands of people at risk are those living in areas worst hit by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.  Our teams are there with prepositioned stocks throughout the Philippines, including hygiene kits, water purification tablets and items like sleeping mats and baby blankets, ready for rapid distribution.

Please give what you can today.

We are particularly concerned about the families still struggling to recover from typhoon Haiyan.

Many are living in inadequate shelter that will not be able to withstand another violent storm and there is a lack of functional evacuation centres, with many damaged or destroyed during last year’s typhoon.

Extreme rainfall and sustained winds will cause even more damage to homes, businesses and livelihoods as well as severe flooding.

Thousands of people could be without clean water, food or shelter. With the threat of disease from contaminated water from open wells high, we know that is it vital to act quickly as that saves lives. 

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

Last year, our experienced aid workers reached more than 860,000 people affected by Typhoon Haiyan, immediately providing basic essentials such as clean water and shelter and later helping them to rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
