Helping the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan
SINGAPORE — Several organisations in Singapore are raising funds for those affected by the deadly Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
The super typhoon, which barrelled across Philippines last Friday (Nov 8), has devastated cities, towns and fishing villages, bringing about heavy loss of life. Thousands have died and some 660,000 have been displaced.

A team of SRC volunteers and staff will leave for the affected areas at Visayas on Nov 14 to help with the distribution of relief items. The SRC is working closely with the Philippine Red Cross to dispatch medical teams to the affected areas in the coming weeks.
