In the devastating wake of Typhoon Haiyan our teams in the Philippines are doing whatever it takes to get life-saving supplies to children and families. We estimate 4 million children have been affected in the aftermath of the superstorm.
How Save the Children is responding:
- A plane with almost 100 tonnes of aid supplies has arrived. The aid will be distributed to the worst hit areas. Items delivered include 4 mobile clinics, 12,000 blankets, 500 new born kits and a vast supply of basic shelter items.
- A team of 12 doctors from the UK arriving to offer immediate treatment of the injured and sick
- Nine senior logistics experts – from Britain, Australia, and Denmark – are making sure help gets through to the people who need it most
- Teams assessing need in Llolio-llolio, Rohas, Tacloban, and two sites on the island of Cebu.
- Four trucks headed for Tacloban loaded with tarpaulins, household goods, hygiene equipment, and fuel.
- More planes are planned for the coming days which will see aid delivered from warehouses in Europe, Africa and Asia
