Super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) hit land at 4.45am local time on 8th November and the total population in the worst affected areas is thought to be in the region of 18 million people with 2.5 million being in need of emergency food aid. A total of 944,590 families (4.3 million people) are affected by the Typhoon and about 70‐80% of the buildings in the area in the path of Haiyan in Leyte province were destroyed. This is preliminary data and is likely to change as more information becomes available - invariably the numbers are revised upward rather than downward.
We're sending a team to help.
We are taking 500 Water Survival Boxes which includes a filtration pack + chlorine tablets, each box contains enough for a family of 4 for some 4 months plus essential survival items such as tarpaulin, cooking pots & equipment and basic tools. The cost of each survival box is £150 and we are doing this in partnership with the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge. We'll also be providing other humanitarian and Search and Rescue assistance whilst we're there. Our team members have left their families and day jobs in order to fly to the disaster zone and help those in very real need.
