Typhoon Yolanda, also known as Haiyan, slammed into the central Philippine islands of Leyte and Samar on Friday with winds up to 235 miles per hour - the strongest storm to ever make landfall anywhere in the world. Typhoon leveled fishing villages and officials fear that over 10,000 people were killed in Tacloban City alone. Thousands are accounted for in neighboring villages in Samar. Typhoon Haiyan affected 9.5 million people across the Philippines and more than 600,000 people were displaced across the country. Most Survivors were described as being in desperate need of clean drinking water and food.

International Initiative for the Philippines “IIP” is working with its field team and local partners to evaluate needs for long-term recovery.
