Habitat for Humanity provides shelter repair and clean-up kits to those affected by Typhoon Haiyan

International disaster relief charity Habitat for Humanity is working actively in the Philippines to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, focusing on Bogo City and Bantayan Island, two of the worst-hit areas in the disaster zone.

The region was hit by a typhoon 3.5 times stronger than Hurricane Katrina on Friday 8 November and estimates from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) suggest that 11.3 million people have been affected with 2.5 million in need of food aid.

Habitat for Humanity has begun to distribute 30,000 shelter repair kits to those in need (5,000 specifically within Bogo City and Bantayan Island), with each package including plywood, lumber, hammer, handsaw, nails and galvanized iron sheets. The team will also give out 50,000 clean-up kits, including a broom, map, bucket, floor brush and industrial disinfectant cleaner.
