International Disaster Volunteers (IDV), Typhoon Haiyan Response
This is the company we will be working with in Tacloban and some information on their efforts.
Super Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. The storm has displaced more than 4 million people, affected 13 million, and killed over 4,000.
We’re currently working in close partnership with local Filipino organisations to deliver relief to the hardest hit areas. As we support local relief efforts we’re also assessing how we can best help with the huge need for longer-term reconstruction and recovery.
Our early focus on supporting local groups, and our careful consideration of communities long-term needs are essential to our proven model of supporting survivor-directed, sustainable recovery. Recovery from Haiyian will take years, and, with your support, we’ll be there every step of the way.
