Typhoon Haiyan: latest updates on UK aid


The UK is providing urgent humanitarian support for up to 800,000 people in the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.

Thousands of people in remote communities have lost their homes and everything they own. They are in the open and completely exposed to the elements.

The UK will provide over £50 million in humanitarian support to help aid get through to hard to reach areas.

UK support will include:

the redeployment of HMS Daring and HMS Illustrious to the Philippines to join the aid effort
flights delivering 4x4s, forklift trucks, water purification kits and cutting equipment to flood hit areas
the deployment of a team of 12 NHS staff trained to operate under emergency conditions
providing temporary shelters, bedding, blankets and solar lanterns to people through the Rapid Response Facility
£30 million to support the UN and Red Cross emergency appeals for the Philippines
