Visit by Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC, to the Philippines

Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, embarked on a visit to the Philippines following the massive destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan. She went to Tacloban pour rencontrer les autorités nationales, observer les dévastations et recueillir des rapports détaillés auprès d'experts de la Commission qui ont été détachés sur place dès les premières heures de la catastrophe.
The tropical cyclone Haiyan (locally named Yolanda), one of the strongest ever recorded, hit the Philippines on 7 and 8 November causing wide-spread damage. The full extent of destruction is still being accessed. The United Nations estimated that 11.3 million people - or over 10% of the Philippine population – are affected. The death toll continued to rise. In this context, Kristalina Georgieva announced 7 million euro more in humanitarian aid. This decision brings to 20 million euro the Commission's assistance to the Philippines in the aftermath of Haiyan (including emergency humanitarian aid of 3million euro and 10 million euro of reconstruction assistance pledged by the Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development).
Member States had also contributed around 25 million euro in financial aid in addition to generous in-kind support.
