Philippines: Typhoon Haiyan donations

WHO would like to gratefully acknowledge the generous contributions of support

As of 25 November 2013, WHO received funding and firm commitments from Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, Norway, the United Kingdom and the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for a total of US$ 12 million. Rapid deployment of staff and medical supplies has been made possible thanks to contributions made earlier in 2013 to enhance WHO’s surge capacity for acute emergencies from the governments of the Russian Federation, Sweden and the United States of America, and from the European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO).
