Join Us In Donating To The Philippines Typhoon Appeal

Millions of people have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan which struck the Philippines on 8th November 2013. 

Typhoon Haiyan was 300 miles across and was the strongest tropical storm to ever make landfall. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost everything and are in urgent need of emergency shelter, food and clean water.

The Disaster Emergency Committee’s (DEC) Chief Executive Saleh Saeed said “The public’s reaction to the sheer devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan has been quite simply remarkable. We are so grateful for the huge volume of donations, which are vital to fund the work done by our member agencies’ emergency teams.”

The Cyclops Group will be holding a dress down day on Friday 29th November in aid of the Philippines Typhoon Appeal. All proceeds raised for the appeal are being used to deliver food, water, household items and tarpaulins to those affected by the typhoon.
