On Friday 8th, Haiyan Typhoon swept across the Philippines and devastated the country with rare violence. Officially, already 10.000 deaths were reported. As for those who survived, they lost everything and are now in a situation of major distress, with no access to humanitarian assistance.
Operating in the Philippines since 2000, Action against Hunger did not wait for official reports to react. Our teams are already on the ground, distributing emergency humanitarian aid to those who survived, such as basic necessity kits (bucket, soap, chlorine). As for our emergency teams, they remain ready to intervene as soon as access to the most affected is re-established. The city of Tacloban for example is completely cut off from the world, with no food, no water and no electricity.
Millions of people have already been affected. The situation in terms of water, sanitation and food security is dramatic and makes us fear the worst. While all the distribution networks for drinkable water have been destroyed and that food is missing, one of the first emergencies for Action against Hunger is to quickly bring treated water to avoid outbreak of diseases. Stocks of materials, such as water treatment plants, bladders, pumps, chlorine etc. had already been positioned prior the event to anticipate such disaster.
If the people of the Philippines are used to storms, these winds of 196 miles/hr and the 9.8 inches waves made this typhoon the most powerful of 2013 and the most violent since decades. While this typhoon threats the lives of more and more victims, Action against Hunger launched today a call for emergency donations.
