Please Support the Victims of Typhoon Hiayan

Typhoon XXX has caused devistaation to large parts of the phillipines

Estimates of the death toll caused by Typhoon Hiayan is currently over 10,000.

I am sure you will have seen the shocking footage from the Philippines over the last few days. Typhoon Haiyan has claimed the lives of over 10,000 people. A further 670,000 people have been displaced and are at risk if they do not receive vital supplies of food, clean water and medicine.

This is one of the worst natural disasters of modern times and the UN has launched an appeal to raise £190 million in humanitarian aid.

The UK Government has sent £10 million in aid so far and is providing warships to help deliver humanitarian aid to where it is most needed.

I urge you to donate whatever you can to help the people of the Philippines overcome this terrible tragedy.

The Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) has set up a dedicated phone line for donations: 0370 6060 900

Or visit the website http://dec.org.uk/ and pledge what you can.

You can also donate £3 by texting UNICEF to 70123.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the Philippines in this difficult time.
