CAMPAIGN: Children International Responds to Typhoon Haiyan

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Children International is preparing its disaster-response teams for readiness as Typhoon Haiyan approaches the Philippines. Set to hit land within the next 24 - 36 hours, Haiyan has been declared a "super typhoon," meaning this category 5 storm's winds should exceed 155 mph.

Children International is deeply concerned about the potential impact on people at risk in the area, especially those living on remote islands or in flood-prone areas. For updates about the storm, please visit Children International's Facebook page and Twitter feed. Please donate now to support Children International's disaster response. Emergency aid provides water, food and support for victims of disasters. Your donation is critically important and helps us provide aid to children and their families impacted by storms like Super Typhoon Haiyan.
