When disaster strikes, everyone must act quickly to make sure aid reaches those in need. But before the worst happens, we as citizens must help people reduce their vulnerability. And we must call on governments for greater investment in protecting lives.
Typhoon Haiyan, also known as Yolanda, is the strongest storm in the world this year and quite possibly the most powerful to ever hit land. Oxfam aid teams are on the ground in the Philippines and reporting urgent needs of food, clean water, medicine and shelter.
