Typhoon Haiyan: Latest updates on the emergency response in the Philippines
The devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan is a humanitarian catastrophe. The International Rescue Committee and our partners in the Philippines are focusing on urgent water, sanitation and shelter needs, along with programs that will protect those most vulnerable in the wake of a disaster: women, children and the elderly. We're also setting up livelihoods programs to put some money back into people’s pockets and help to revitalize the local economy.
