UNICEF and partners continue to provide life-saving and recovery assistance for children affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Eight months after the Typhoon, more is being done to restore lives back to normal and to build resilience against future disasters.
In June, the first three villages were verified free of open defecation. These communities have collectively changed their sanitation practices, using toilets and managing solid waste appropriately to prevent the spread of disease.
Thank you to our donors UNICEF’s humanitarian response and early recovery needs for children affected by Typhoon Haiyan are now fully funded to November 2014. $11 million in additional funding is required for UNICEF’s humanitarian responses for victims of conflict in Mindanao, including Zamboanga.
