Philippines Emergency Appeal
Over 35,000 children have been vaccinated against polio and measles, and over 24,000 have received Vitamin A supplements through a mass vaccination campaign.
At least 428,000 people now have access to safe water in Tacloban, Cebu, Capiz, Roxas City and three cities in Western Samar since Typhoon Haiyan struck a month ago.
But the relief work is far from over. Over 5 million children are left affected in the aftermath of the devastating storm, of whom over 1.6 million are displaced. Children are growing increasingly vulnerable to water-borne diseases, separation from family and protection violations such as trafficking, child labour and gender-based violence.
Super Typhoon #Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) is this year's most powerful tropical storm and is also the latest natural disaster to strike a country already reeling from monsoon flooding and a massive earthquake that struck in October.
UNICEF is appealing for US$ 61.5 million (approximately RM 185 million) to meet the urgent needs of hundreds of thousands of children who fought to survive #Haiyan, but now need life-saving aid to survive the aftermath.
We urgently appeal for your help so that we can respond to the needs of the children and families most affected by this latest calamity.
