Thanks to your amazing support our Philippines Typhoon Appeal raised £3.7 million for children and families affected by the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013. Our teams have helped more than 490,000 people so far, including 232,000 children.
However, there's still much to be done to help children and their families which is why Save the Children will continue its work in the region.
We've launched an ambitious programme of helping more than 800,000 children who need long-term support.
