InterAction Members Respond To Typhoon Haiyan
> Return to List of Crises
One of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded devastated parts of the central Philippines on November 8, 2013, affecting more than 14 million people – including at least five million children. Many lost everything: their loved ones, their homes, their livelihoods.
A disaster of this magnitude required a massive and coordinated global response effort. Supplies and experienced humanitarian workers, including from the InterAction members listed below, were deployed from around the world in the immediate aftermath to support government-led efforts in the Philippines.

It will take years for the communities hit by Haiyan to recover and rebuild. InterAction members continue to support that effort. Visit their websites to learn more about their ongoing work.
