Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 8. The impact and resulting tidal surge caused significant damage and loss of life.
As in any natural disaster, children are among those who suffer the most. Immediately after typhoon Haiyan, UNICEF launched an emergency response. UNICEF's primary concern was the health of children and their families. Along with those priorities, UNICEF's work for children has now extended to ensuring their safety and emotional well-being, and supporting children to return to school.

Your donation will help a generation of children affected by this catastrophe to rebuild their lives: to stay clean, healthy and free of disease; to resume their studies quickly; and to remain free from threats to their physical and emotional safety.

Category five Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines at 4.30am local time on Friday 8 November forcing millions of people to seek shelter. Latest estimates indicate up to 5 million children may have been impacted by the disaster. The super typhoon ripped roofs off housing, uprooted trees and killed thousands of people.
