On Friday, a typhoon called Haiyan struck the eastern coast of the Philippines, an island nation in the western Pacific ocean.
The storm was devastating. There are estimates of sustained 195 mile per hour winds, making it the strongest storm ever to make landfall for as long as records have been kept. Officials say as many as 10,000 people were killed.
If you want to help those in need in the aftermath of the storm, here are places you can get started. We’ll update this list as more information becomes available.
ShelterBox provides shelter and supplies to families who are displaced or homeless after a disaster.
The Philippine Red Cross is set up to support those affected by the storm.
CARE is delivering food and water, as well as providing shelter, to survivors.
The World Food Program is working to solve hunger issues around the world, and is providing support to those affected by Haiyan.
And as always, you can double check your charity at Charity Navigator. They got a round up of already vetted places to donate to Haiyan right here.
