CARE Assisting Remote Areas Hit by Typhoon Haiyan
CARE has reached more than 220,000 people with emergency aid since the catastrophic storm tore a path through the central Philippines on November 7 and 8.
"We were in the middle of a disaster zone"
CARE's emergency communications officers have been traveling with our disaster relief teams to hard-hit areas of the Philippines and blogging about what they see.
CARE Is There
CARE is on the ground - now and for the long run - in remote, typhoon-affected areas of the Philippines providing food, shelter, livelihood assistance and other essentials to survivors of the storm.
The deep appreciation expressed by the people who have lived through one of the strongest storms in history has touched our team in the Philippines deeply. The storm survivors are extremely thankful for the support they have received. They say so repeatedly to anyone associated with our relief efforts, and thank you they clearly want passed on to all involved in CARE's work.
And so, to you, our donors and supporters: Salamat!
