Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal

At the beginning of this year, Manduka was able to support the Red Cross disaster relief for victims of the Typhoon Haiyan.

With sustained winds reported at more than 145 miles per hour, Haiyan was the second category 5 typhoon to strike the Philippines in 2013. This deadly storm impacted an estimated 16 million people, according to the Philippine government, and, at the height of the storm, more than 4 million people were displaced from their homes.

In the aftermath, thousands of volunteers braved difficult conditions and damaged infrastructure to provide lifesaving assistance, shelter and reassurance to people impacted by the storm. With the support of the global Red Cross network, the Philippine Red Cross has provided food to more than 1.1 million survivors.
