Help Victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines

Super Typhoon Haiyan (or known as Yolanda in the Philippines) has been recorded as one of the world's strongest typhoons. It ripped through the Philippines and has displaced nearly 800,000 people and has caused widespread devastation.

If you would like to help, there are many organizations who are helping with relief efforts. The people of the Philippines need everyone's help, no matter how big or small.

- World Food Programme: "WFP is mobilising quickly to reach those in need. Please make a donation now to provide emergency food assistance to families and children."

- UNICEF: "Children urgently need access to safe water, hygiene supplies, food, shelter and a safe environment to recover... Our resources are stretched from responding to three emergencies in a row within two months: armed conflict in Zamboanga, the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Bohol--and now, super typhoon Yolanda. We urgently need your help so we can aid those who are severely affected by this latest disaster."

- Save The Children: "Your support will help us protect vulnerable children and provide desperately needed relief to families. Ten percent of your contribution will be used to help us prepare for the next emergency... Donate now to the Typhoon Haiyan Children’s Relief Fund to support Save the Children's responses to ongoing and urgent needs as a result of the super typhoon."

- Global Medic: "Currently, our team in the Philippines is positioning water purification units to help people affected by the disaster. In the next 24 hours, our Canadian team will head to the area to provide support and increase the capacity of this program. We will be running an Explorer water purification unit which can purify 65 litres of dirty water per minute. We will also be running our Aqua Response 10 unit which can purify 38 litres of water a minute. Additionally, we are sending 1.4 million 1 litre water purification tablets."

- Care: "CARE is working to deliver emergency aid to families affected by one of the worst storms ever recorded..."

- World Vision: "Your contribution will help us deliver life-saving assistance in the aftermath of sudden-onset emergencies in the Philippines, like Typhoon Haiyan."

-AmeriCares: "Help AmeriCares deliver urgently-needed aid to support families struggling in the aftermath of disaster ... . A new emergency shipment is underway with enough medical aid for 20,000 survivors, including antibiotics, wound care supplies and pain relievers. AmeriCares is also providing emergency funding that will allow partner organizations in the Philippines to purchase and distribute critical relief supplies in the hardest-hit areas."

- To donate to the Salvation Army's Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts, text TYPHOON to 80888 to donate $10 and reply YES to confirm your donation. The organization uses 100% of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief.

You can also look up anything that may be going on in your area, such as a fundraiser, that is trying to help with the victims of this terrible storm.
