The aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan

HOPE International Development Agency is on the ground in the storm-affected areas of the Philippines, continuing to assess the need and providing much needed support.

Travelling through northern Cebu is heartbreaking. The devastation is hard to fathom. In some areas visited, nearly 95% of the homes in the area have been destroyed by the typhoon.

In Bohol, an area hit by a large earthquake 3 weeks prior to the arrival of the killer typhoon, the loss of life and devastation is significant. The vast majority of buildings, roads, communications infrastructure, and homes have been obliterated by the storm.

People need food, water, and shelter - we are doing our best to help!

The Government of Canada will match donations from Canadians up until December 8, 2013.
