Philippines Typhoon Appeal: How To Donate

13 November 2013, 09:51

Find out how you can donate towards the Disaster Emergency Committee's urgent appeal.

Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the Philippines from November 8th, killing an estimated 10,000 people and leaving 600,000 more displaced. 9.8 million people now need urgent aid.

The humanitarian impact is thought to be massive, with the homes of hundreds of thousands of people destroyed or severely damaged. The destruction will also have a huge impact on families' livelihoods and businesses.

Power and communication lines are down in many parts of the country and roads are impassable, with many airports out of action. The main aid priorities are food, water and emergency shelter.

The DEC urgently needs funds so that our member agencies can respond and help those affected re-build their lives.

You can donate crucial funds by post, online and over the counter. You could also plan a fundraising event or sponsored activity.
