On 12 November, a woman cradling a baby stands amid debris and other destruction caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan, in Tacloban City – the area worst affected by the disaster – on the central island of Leyte.

Philippines: Typhoon Haiyan

One month on from the devastating Super Typhoon that struck the Philippines, 1.6 million children remain displaced out of an affected population of 4 million.

As the focus for local authorities shifts from immediate response  towards recovery and rehabilitation, UNICEF and  humanitarian partners have finalised a Strategic Response Plan which covers the next 12 months and complements the Government’s Yolanda Recovery and Rehabilitation Plan.*

UNICEF is continuing in its efforts to deliver vital supplies to the impacted population, including oral polio vaccine and measles-rubella vaccine for campaigns that will protect tens of thousands of children, as well as education supplies, kits and tents for the establishment of temporary learning spaces to help children return to school.

The first UNICEF supplies arrived in the Philippines within 72 hours of Typhoon Haiyan striking, supplementing pre-positioned UNICEF supplies in the country. By mid-December, UNICEF Supply, in coordination with UNICEF Philippines, has flown more than 900 metric tonnes of emergency supplies into the country.
In addition to supplies, 19 supply and logistics staff have been deployed to support the local emergency response, including receiving goods, warehousing, distribution and monitoring of goods to ensure they are reaching the affected population.
