Millions of people in the Philippines will go hungry in the coming months if rice farmers don’t receive urgent assistance after typhoon Haiyan wiped out a third of the countries rice growing areas.
Typhoon Haiyan was the strongest storm in the world this year and quite possibly the most powerful to ever hit land. You can help Oxfam deliver water and sanitation materials to the region, by donating now.
Members of the Disaster Emergencies Committee (DEC) are warning governments meeting at the UN climate talks in Warsaw that the devastating super typhoon that struck the Philippines is a glimpse of the future if urgent action is not taken.
Oxfam continues to reach more people affected by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines as it delivered emergency relief starting on Friday afternoon (15 November) in the northern tip of Cebu.
Oxfam plans to provide vital assistance in the next few weeks to some 20,000 families affected by Typhoon Haiyan, working very closely with a multitude of partners to deliver water, basic sanitation, tents and tarpaulins for emergency shelter.
On 8 November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, affecting about 14 million people. Three months on, despite a huge national and international effort, the poorest coconut farmers, traders and fisherpeople are being left out of the recovery effort.
