WFP: A Mega Disaster, A Mega Response

I would never forget how the world responded when Haiyan hit the Philippines. And I am forever grateful for the help extended to our country. I may not be directly affected by the tragedy but still, it is my social obligation as a Filipino to help my brothers and sisters continue living. With the help of World Food Programme which not only focus on giving emergency food, but aims to help the people affected with their livelihood, it is easier for me to reach out.

 I have received once again an email from WFP thanking me for my donation. But in all honesty, I am thanking them more in exerting much effort in helping our land recover and move forward. I have donated. I have helped. And I hope you too.

Here's how:

When Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines 3 months ago, our role was to quickly assess the damage and launch a response. WFP brought food into the country at a pace few had ever seen before.

By the end of November, we had already reached nearly 3 million people with food assistance.

Now we’re focused on recovery and preparing communities against natural disasters in the future. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of our donors. Take a look >> 
Your support helped ensure our response was quick, efficient and SUCCESSFUL. Together, we saved countless lives in the Philippines.

Thank you,
World Food Programme
