This emergency is one of the biggest ever

After Super Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) deployed logistics pipelines to transport emergency food products and other crucial relief items to the affected areas. Providing food is a major component of the emergency relief effort in the worst-hit areas. WFP has to date dispatched high energy biscuits and rice to three million people in Tacloban, Ormoc and Guiuan. In other areas, where power is on and markets open, WFP will support recovery with ‘Food for Assets’ programmes or cash transfers. Donations are welcome to fund the programmes.
