Typhoon Haiyan is the strongest recorded Typhoon to hit the Philippines. There have been over 5,000 confirmed deaths and over 11 million people have been affected by the disaster.
`Operation Philippines` is JHelps fourth operation in the Philippines and is a response to Typhoon Haiyan. `Operation Philippines` is our 89th Disaster Operation since 1989 when the team was formed by 38 students from Tokyo`s Chuo University.
The team and partners are on the ground in the Philippines and are urgently requesting funding for emergency supplies including canned and instant food, powdered milk, bottled water and drinks, tents, sleeping bags, used tablet and laptop computers, towels, soap, shampoo, and home medical kits. The team can also use donated airline miles for team members to travel to the area.
