Thanks to the generous support of many, Oxfam has been able to reach nearly 550,000 people affected by Typhoon Haiyan with assistance. We will continue to support the people of the Philippines on the road to recovery - rebuilding livelihoods, and reducing risk of future losses, caused by natural disasters.

Thanks to a huge outpouring of generous support, Oxfam has been able reach more than 547,000 people with emergency relief since Typhoon Haiyan devastated large areas of the Philippines on 8 November 2013. Three months after Typhoon Haiyan hit, this video gives a snapshot of our humanitarian response. Read more:

One month after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, Peter Struijf, Oxfam Program Manager, gives a quick overview of the response to date, and the current situation in the most affected areas.

We are urgently trying to reach 500,000 people affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Our priority will be to reach the most vulnerable families with safe water and sanitation facilities. Local knowledge + good relationships will help Oxfam’s disaster response. It’s a good thing we’ve worked in the Philippines since 1987. Please support Oxfam's humanitarian response to Haiyan (locally Yolanda).

Philippines Typhoon Haiyan: help Oxfam provide immediate help to those most affected. We are urgently trying to reach 500,000 people affected. Our priority is to reach the most vulnerable families with safe water and sanitation facilities to help protect people from public health risks. You can help

Oxfam has launched a $16 million appeal to support our humanitarian response to the Philippines Typhoon Haiyan. We aim to reach 500,000 people with clean water and sanitation facilities, and more. Please donate to help:

Typhoon #Haiyan caused widespread damage to livelihoods in the #Philippines. Among the worst affected, was coconut farming with millions of trees being uprooted, damaged or destroyed. Oxfam is supplying saw mills so people can clear their land, create lumber for rebuilding, and have jobs.

It’s been one year since super-Typhoon #Haiyan tore through the Philippines, a disaster that devastated thousands of lives and left millions of people homeless. Governments and regional institutions in Asia must show leadership in stepping up to the challenge of rising disaster and #climate risk. #Haiyan1year #GreenClimateFund

Today, November 19, 2013, is the first-ever World Toilet Day. Among the 16 tons of Oxfam water and sanitation equipment that landed at Cebu airport in the Philippines today, were 700 latrines slabs (enough for 14,000 people). We aim to provide 1,000 communal latrines across Samar, Leyte, and northern Cebu, in the first phase of our response. #YolandaPH

Karachi | کراچی

Op 9 oktober 2012 werd Malala neergeschoten omdat ze streed voor meisjesonderwijs in Pakistan. In heel Pakistan werden wakes gehouden als protest tegen deze aanslag. Oxfam Novib vroeg haar Facebookfans deze kaars te delen als teken van protest. Onze partners in Pakistan plaatsten een kaarsje voor elke share. Op 18 oktober 2012 brandden 8000 kaarsjes in in Karachi en Bahawalpur. De solidariteit sterkte de vredescampagne Peace My Right in Pakistan en moedigde hen aan om door te gaan.
