Typhoon Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda, was one of the most powerful storms ever recorded. It made landfall in the Philippines on November 8, 2013, leaving a massive trail of devastation. More than 6,000 people were killed and millions were left homeless. Buildings and roads crumbled, fishing boats were wrecked, and groves of coconut trees were flattened, leaving many families unable to earn the incomes they depended on.
One year later, Save the Children has moved from providing emergency relief work to the recovery stage. We are supporting the rebuilding of homes and livelihoods of over 1 million people, among them over 826,000 children. Read the press release.
