TYPHOON Haiyan ripped through the Central Philippines
leaving a path of death and destruction behind it and millions
of people in urgent need of emergency assistance.
Since then, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP),
the world’s largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger,
has been reaching out to survivors with crucial food assistance.
At the time of the launch of Live Feed Philippines, WFP had reached 3 million people with food assistance.
WFP will gradually phase out its emergency operations and remain alongside families through early recovery
and resilience building activities to help them rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
Some of the images on this website have been digitally altered to represent the creative concept:
“If it only was this easy.” They are not intended to reflect the reality of life in the Philippines, before or after the storm.
The storm is over, but the struggle to rebuild
has just begun. Join Sami Yusuf’s campaign in partnership
with the World Food Programme and bring aid to the millions
of people affected by Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation.
Listen to his new song “Hope Survives” right here
and donate to this important cause.
In the early stages, WFP provided
high-energy biscuits, as they are easy
to transport, need no cooking and are
particularly convenient with children.
Rice rations and Plumpy’Doz, a specialized
nutrition product, have also been
distributed as part of the overall response.
Protecting children from malnutrition is
crucial and WFP is working with partners
to provide specialised nutritional products
for the youngest and most vulnerable in
hard hit areas.
Multi-million album selling star Sami Yusuf has dedicated his latest song to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Entitled “Hopes Survives”, the not-for-profit track is the backbone of Live Feed Philippines, a campaign launched in collaboration with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to encourage donations to support families affected by one of the most powerful storms ever to make landfall.
Serving as WFP Celebrity Partner since 2011, Sami Yusuf has provided
continuous support to WFP through his “Live Feed” initiative against world
hunger. Capitalizing on his millions of Facebook fans and a wide network of
active followers of all ages and nationalities around the globe, Yusuf is
lending his voice and energy to victims of Haiyan, hoping to build a new
chain of solidarity with Live Feed Philippines.
Available for free through this website, “Hope Survives” is Sami Yusuf’s
gift to the millions affected by the typhoon and an invitation to his fans and
the public to contribute to the cause through WFP.
