Typhoon Haiyan, or Yolanda as it is known locally, the strongest typhoon ever recorded at landfall, ripped through the central Philippines on November 8, 2013. It caused devastation on an unprecedented scale—roofs were ripped off, villages were flattened, livelihoods were swept away, and a tsunami-like storm surge claimed more than 6,300 lives and displaced some four million people.*

This special report details MSF's activities in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, which ripped through the central Philippines on November 8, 2013, causing a disaster of unprecedented proportions.

Six months after Haiti’s January 12 earthquake, MSF describes the organization’s largest ever emergency response.

Six months after Haiti’s January 12 earthquake, MSF describes the organization’s largest ever emergency response.

One year after a devastating earthquake, Haitians continue to endure appalling living conditions amid a nationwide cholera outbreak, despite the largest humanitarian aid deployment in the world.

By the end of 2010, MSF has estimated it will have spent all of the $138 million donated by private supporters for Haiti. 

MSF had already been present and active in Haiti for the past 19 years. It was therefore ready to respond when the disaster struck. And it is now prepared to do the work that will remain in the days, months, and years to come.
