Rebuilding in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan

One of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, category five Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on Friday 8 November, uprooting homes, destroying businesses and sadly taking lives. 

As the country now begins to recover from the destruction, you can provide a hand up to families in the Philippines by giving them the support they need to rebuild their lives.

Are you able to provide hope to families in the Philippines?

Funds raised through this appeal will enable our microfinance partners in the Philippines to continue to support people in immediate need in the regions affected. 
Funds will be utilised post the emergency efforts to:
Equip families with emergency loan assistance
Support local staff in the regions affected
Help ensure the sustainability of our local microfinance partners.
Restoring the economic health of a community is crucial to any long-term disaster recovery and is often forgotten in the immediate response to provide emergency assistance. The opportunity to earn an income and restore damaged assets is fundamental to foster dignity and independence in the wake of this crisis.
As the immediate threat passes, you can walk beside affected families, giving them the hand up they need to look to the future.

Your support  will help families recover from this devastating time. Thank you for your giving – it makes such a difference. 

Any excess funds will be sent to the area of greatest need.

One photo shows a boy standing in the devastation, wearing a tee-shirt which says 'never give up'. Poignant, and although these communities are very resilient, they need our available thoughts, prayers and financial assistance at this time.
