More than 14.1 million Filipinos have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan, 4.1 million of whom remain displaced from their homes (06 January 2014).

According to the authorities, the official death toll stands at 5,500, while an additional 1,800 people remain missing (28 November 2013).

UNHCR has been operating in the Philippines for many years. Right now, we continue to distribute emergency shelter, household items and plastic sheets to uprooted families.
