Stand Up for Children in the Philippines!
The destruction in Tacloban in the Philippines is almost total - it now lies in ruins, crushed by tsunami-like waves of water as high as 13 feet.
Thousands have been reported dead. Across the country, 5 million children are at risk. Many young lives are at stake.
For children who have survived, clean water is a matter of life and death. Safe drinking water can be impossible to find after such a massive natural disaster. And without it, a child will drink whatever water she can find, no matter how dirty or diseased. That drink can quickly lead to diarrhea, disease and death.
The need is overwhelming. Support UNICEF now to ship more clean water, nutritious food, vaccines, sanitation supplies and medicine to the most desperate children.
