On Friday, one of the most powerful storms ever to make landfall hit the Philippines and devastated the country. The 300 mile wide storm ripped through the centre of the country where 4.3 million people live. It’s estimated that nearly 12,000 people have died and millions have had their lives torn apart.
The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) brings 14 leading UK charities together to help in times of crisis, ensuring that donations go directly to where they’ll make the most difference. They have set up an appeal towards helping the people of the Philippines get the food, water and shelter they desperately need.
We’ve set up a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving – Philippines Typhoon Appeal to help raise as much money as possible for DEC. Any amount will help to repair some of the damage that’s turned the lives of so many people upside down.
