Super Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on Friday 8 November 2013. According to the latest estimates, several thousand people have died and nearly 4.5 million people are without shelter, food or water.

This teaching resource will help your learners explore why Haiyan had such a catastrophic impact, what makes poor people particularly vulnerable to disasters, and how governments, organisations and ordinary people can respond.

Campaigning and fundraising are suggested as appropriate actions for young people who wish to get involved, with guidance on how to maximise the educational potential of these activities.
