Animal Victims of Typhoon Haiyan Need Help Now
On November 7, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, approached the Philippines with sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph). The typhoon spanned a 500-mile wide swath of destruction. Early Friday morning local time, the storm made landfall in Guiuan, a small city in Samar province. The storm continued through central Philippines, home to more than 10 million people. This path includes Bohol, a town that suffered a 7.2 magnitude earthquake on October 15th, 2013. Devastation across the Philippines is expected as this is the strongest tropical storm in the world for 2013.
November 11, 2013: GreaterGood's trusted partners are preparing to respond to save the animals affected by this disaster. IFAW has deployed a team that will arrive this week and will report back once they are on the ground. Humane Society International already has an experienced veterinary team in Cebu, the biggest island in the strike zone. We've also received word that Rescue Bank plans to ship several large containers of pet food to the region. There will most definitely be limited access to pet food, so a shipment of this kind will be integral to recovery. The ocean freight costs will be significant, and GreaterGood.org would like to help.
