Update on Typhoon Haiyan

As you all know by now, the devastation brought by Super Typhoon Haiyan was felt throughout Southeast Asia and it was the Philippines, especially in the Visayas province, that was most affected. It is the deadliest typhoon in the country that was ever recorded.

As of this writing, death toll rose to more than 6,000, more than 1,000 people are still missing and more than 27,000 people
were injured according to the latest news reports.

Out of the 14 million people affected, 4 million were displaced, at least a hundred thousand of them are still staying in evacuation centers and among them are helpless children.

I previously wrote a post about the super typhoon hoping to lead readers to donate to reputable organizations that were helping the typhoon victims.

I myself made a donation through UNICEF Philippines and some days ago I got a message from them giving update on what help has been rendered and how the people are recovering so far.

Below is an infograph that shows where the donations went.
