Handicap International is responding to the needs of victims of super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in central Philippines. This support is given particularly to people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups, who are often left out in emergency situations.

Super typhoon Haiyan is said to be history’s strongest typhoon to ever make landfall. More than 6,000 people perished.

Handicap International aids victims by providing them with shelter kits, water purification pumps, psychosocial sessions, livelihood programs, and assistive devices such as wheelchairs and crutches. This emergency response project has three sites: Tacloban City, Cebu City, and Roxas City.
