Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Appeal - Please give generously13 November 2013
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is holding an appeal to assist our Philippines partner provide medical assistance to communities affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
Tacloban city, the capital of Leyte province, has been virtually flattened with homes, schools and other infrastructure either blown or washed away. Hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless.
Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Typhoon Yolanda, may prove to be the deadliest natural disaster in the history of the Philippines. It is certainly one of the strongest storms ever recorded.
As with most catastrophes, it is the poorest who are hit the hardest. In the Philippines, the shanties of the poor are built on the lowest lying land and are the most susceptible to flooding and storm surges.
