CRS Responding to Super Typhoon Haiyan.
From Catholic Relief Services website:
Super Typhoon Haiyan, the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds of 195 miles per hour, slammed into the Philippines on the island of Samar the evening of November 7, 2013, and hit Vietnam on Sunday, November 9. The storm has killed an estimated 10,000 people, and local officials report approximately 9.5 million people have been affected.
Catholic Relief Services, in cooperation with our partners, will provide100,000 families with shelter, essential living supplies, and clean water and sanitation. We will continue to identify the most vulnerable communities that need assistance.
CRS desperately needs your help so we can reach people and communities in desperate need—now and as they rebuild their lives.
