Update on CARE's Response to Typhoon Haiyan
CARE is providing food, shelter and other lifesaving essentials to survivors of the storm, which affected up to 16.1 million people, displaced 4.1 million and killed thousands of men, women and children.
CARE has a long history in the Philippines that stretches back to 1949. For decades, we've been providing emergency relief when disaster strikes and helping communities prepare for disasters. We were there in 2009 when typhoon Ketsana hit and again in 2012 when typhoon Bopha ripped through the country.
CARE is currently on the ground providing food, shelter and other essentials to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, which has torn a path across central Philippines, affecting an estimated 9.8 million people and killing as many as 10,000.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
