Philippines: CERF allocations (as of 11 Dec 2013)
CERF’s US$25.3 million allocation on 11 November was the first major injection of funds to support aid operations after Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines three days earlier.
The funding helped humanitarian partners kick-start life-saving relief work, including the provision of food, clean water, health care and shelter for millions of people.
More than 14 million people were affected, 4 million people have been displaced and more than 5,600 people were killed.
One month after the storm, CERF funding accounts for 3.2 per cent of the $791 million requested in the Typhoon Haiyan Action Plan. The $25.3 million CERF allocation still amounts to 12 per cent of $2012 million received by the plan.
Since 2006, CERF has allocated more than $82 million for humanitarian activities in the Philippines.
