Charities on the move after typhoon hits the Philippines

The typhoon that landed to the Philippines on the 8th of November has left destruction and anguish to its wake.

&nbsp
According to the UN the typhoon named Haiyan has been recorded as a one of the strongest storms in history.&nbsp From the Philippines the storm has continued its journey to Vietnam where it continues to cause destruction with a little less strength.
&nbsp
In the Philippines the number of deaths was 10 000 on Sunday and it is feared to grow up to several tens of thousands. Over 650 000 people have been displaced and the total amount of people affected by the storm is 9.5 million. The repercussions of Haiyan will reach far away to the future.
&nbsp
The big international and local charities like Finnish Red Cross and Finn Church Aid have urgently taken to work for delivering help for the survivors of the storm. Many of the survivors are without the basic needs, like food, water and shelter. According to Unicef there is at least 4 million children who are suffering of the effects of the storm.
&nbsp
In many places the completely destroyed communication and road network are making it difficult to deliver the help to those in need. Many of the areas most affected by the storm have been destroyed to the point where everything that remains is rubble on an even land.
&nbsp
Filantropia’s international partner IOCC (International Orthodoc Christian Charities) is also supporting the Philippines and encourages all to keep the victims of this devastating storm and the people of the Philippines in thoughts and prayers.
