The Damage is Done Now It's Our Turn To Help Clean Up The Mess

Those who have survived  Super Typhoon Haiyan are being forced to plead for help, food and water in the central Philippines.

"Hundreds of thousands of homes have been lost, water systems are broken and normal sanitation systems have failed or been flooded. With credible sources quoting that 90% of buildings have been leveled in the coastal area where the typhoon hit, this is now a humanitarian catastrophe that needs a global coordinated response."


Residents of Tacloban can no longer find uncontaminated water.

What Devastated Residents are Saying

"We have only three cans of water left to drink and people have started roaming the streets, going into houses to steal things. It has only been three days. Within two weeks it will be impossible for anyone to survive."

"I had to break into a warehouse to find water but it won't last us two days. People aren't going to survive like this."

"Everywhere, there are bodies, four days on and in the baking heat."


"It's difficult to comprehend the loss of life, of homes, difficult to understand how people can have faith when they have nothing left."
