Children at Risk
Millions of vulnerable children are at risk in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. More than 300 miles wide – about the distance from Boston to Philadelphia – the typhoon left a deadly path of destruction in its wake. According to Philippine authorities, more than 11 million people have been affected by the typhoon, with more than half a million homes destroyed, hundreds of schools damaged and millions of children at risk.
Child Survivor Stories
"Before Save the Children arrived, the children caught coughs and colds from the dirty environment."
"During the typhoon I was scared, because I felt like our house would collapse and we’d be buried alive."

Save the Children's Response
Save the Children's Typhoon Haiyan emergency teams are working around the clock on humanitarian relief for Filipino children and families. Thanks to a tremendous outpouring of support from generous donors like you, Save the Children has mounted a massive response in the Philippines. Our response will focus on delivering the critical assistance children desperately need in the aftermath of a disaster. Overcoming very difficult conditions, we have been delivering aid to the most vulnerable, already reaching thousands of people.
In the coming days, more help is on the way to help vulnerable children and families. With the high risk of mortality among children ages 6 months to 2 years, we are prioritizing the rapid procurement of high-energy biscuits and supplies for infant and young child feeding.
