Typhoon Haiyan: As aid agencies mount mission to help victims of monster storm, how can you help in the relief effort?
Agencies across the world are taking donations to support the estimated two million people impacted
Aid agencies across the world are mounting major relief efforts to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, where up to one million people are thought to have been displaced and left homeless.
A number are appealing for donations as they seek to put together emergency relief including food, shelter and water purification systems.
Here is a rundown of some of the biggest aid campaigns and how you can make donations to help victims of the typhoon, which has already left over 10,000 people dead.
The British Red Cross is taking donations towards the organisation’s relief effort through its website. The emergency appeal will initially help provide hygiene kits, emergency shelter, and access to safe water, which will be distributed through the Philippine Red Cross.
Unicef said its staff in the Philippines were being repositioned to help in relief efforts and 66 tons of emergency supplies were being sent from Copenhagen, Denmark. An airlift due to arrive on Tuesday will include water purification systems, storage equipment and sanitation supplies. Donations can be made to the Unicef appeal here.
Oxfam currently has people on the ground now and is taking donations through its website - to help the charity deploy water and sanitation materials to those affected.
UNITED NATIONS WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has already allocated £1.25m for the disaster response and officials joined a UN-government assessment mission to survey damage in Leyte and Samar provinces.
WFP said it would send more than 40 tons of high-energy biscuits and work with the Filipino government to help with logistics and emergency communications systems. It asks for donations online here.
World Vision is putting together resources to assist 1.2 million people, including food, hygiene kits, emergency shelter and protection. It asked for one-time donations to be made at worldvision.org.
ACTION AGAINST HUNGER
Action Against Hunger shipped eight tons of equipment to support relief efforts on Monday morning which is being deployed by the organisation’s emergency teams. They are asking for donations to support further efforts here.
MEDICINS SANS FRONTIERES
Médecins Sans Frontières - or Doctors Without Borders - has sent a total of nine cargo planes to the Philippines from around the world, carrying hundreds of tonnes of medical relief and humanitarian aid. They have also launched their own emergency fundraising appeal, with a link to donate found here.
