Typhoon Haiyan

Typhoon Haiyan left a massive trail of devastation across the Philippines last November. Thousands were killed and four million people displaced. In all, more than 16 million have been impacted by one of the strongest storms in recorded history.

Mercy Corps deployed our seasoned emergency responders, who rushed food and critical supplies to survivors on remote islands in the immediate aftermath of the storm. Working with partners, we also opened safe spaces for children and distributed tools to help families construct shelters and repair homes in those early weeks.

With roads and buildings — entire villages — destroyed, recovery will be a long process. We're focused on reconstruction: repairing water systems and making sure families have the funds they need to buy food, building materials and needed supplies.

It's our priority to get families back in their homes, kids back in school, and people back to work at reopened businesses as soon as possible.
