Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest storm to ever make landfall, has claimed up to 10,000 lives and affected more than 4 million people across the Philippines. More destruction is set for Vietnam.
Donate now to ensure those affected receive the urgent assistance they need.
Although too soon to gauge the total level of devastation, ADRA's emergency response team is hard at work. In coordination with other responding agencies ADRA is ensuring those affected can survive and rebuild.
Before Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall, our ADRA Philippines team began coordinating emergency response efforts in conjunction with local and national agencies. Being pre-positioned ahead of the super typhoon has helped ADRA to ensure much-needed humanitarian supplies were immediately delivered to the areas most affected and will continue to be delivered. We are providing similar pre-disaster support in Vietnam in the anticipation of this monster storm hitting.
Access to the affected areas has been limited due to damaged roads and fallen trees; this has also limited communications.
Your gifts will provide food, emergency relief, medical aid, education, and development assistance for those who need it most.
In the coming days, ADRA will continue to assess the areas of devastation to ensure the basic needs of vulnerable populations will be met. Considering the broad needs that are emerging, ADRA is also developing longer-term recovery and re-building programs.
Your support today can help vulnerable populations begin to rebuild their lives. Please help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan and pray for those affected by this storm, our ADRA staff and volunteers, and the many emergency aid workers in the region.
