7 Ways the Red Cross is helping People after Typhoon Haiyan
February 07, 2014
When Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines, the Red Cross was one of the first organizations to start helping families affected by the storm—delivering food, healthcare and other vital assistance in the typhoon’s wake. Three months later, there is still a lot of work to be done as the Red Cross helps people regain their livelihoods and restore their neighborhoods. But there has also been immense progress in meeting the needs of men, women and children during their recovery.
