When emergencies hit — they hurt children most. This is especially true in the Philippines with super typhoon Haiyan. Early reports indicate hundreds dead while UNICEF estimates that up to 4 million children could now be affected by the disaster.

It is this year’s most powerful tropical storm and is also the latest natural disaster to strike a country already reeling from monsoon flooding and a massive earthquake that struck in October.

UNICEF, with humanitarian partners, has deployed assessment teams to support the government to respond to this latest disaster. We are rushing emergency life-saving supplies such as therapeutic food for children, health kits, water and hygiene kits to the affected areas.

We urgently appeal for your help so that we can respond to the needs of the children and families most affected by this latest calamity.
