Food for the Hungry (FH) is providing help to some of the 350,000 homeless survivors of the largest typhoon to ever hit land, Typhoon Haiyan. On November 8, Haiyan hit the Philippines and destroyed homes, businesses and roads in nine regions, affecting 9.5 million people according to the United Nations. Local officials estimate that 10,000 people are dead.

FH is focusing work in two of the hardest hit areas, Bicol and Northern Samar. FH contact, Pastora Merly, reported from Northern Samar: “Any help is appreciated. Many of the roofs in our neighborhood were blown off, including our roof…texts from churches about their losses include family members died and missing. We need food, medicine and roofs. We’ve had no power for three days.”

FH, with Integral Alliance partners, is providing food, shelter, medicine and other life-saving items to thousands of vulnerable survivors. People can join FH’s work to provide relief to typhoon survivors by giving at http://fh.org/storm.
