The EU is delivering relief aid to the victims of the most destructive cyclone of the year. Haiyan has reportedly taken more than 10 000 lives and affected nearly 10 million people.
A massive relief operation is going on. Many of the affected areas are still difficult to reach. Priority needs include food, clean water and shelter.
The European Commission has responded with immediate and generous support:
Commissioner Georgieva is visiting the Philippines on Friday and Saturday. The Commission is ready to offer additional aid and to support the Philippines in its longer-term reconstruction and recovery.
The Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world.
The Commission helps significantly in disaster response in the Philippines - since 1997, it has given more than EUR 45 million in the country. In 2013 alone, it provided humanitarian aid after the earthquake in Bohol, Typhoon Bopha (Pablo), the cyclone hit South-Eastern Mindanao and Typhoon Trami (Maring).
