Devastation in the Philippines

Thousands of people have been killed in Southeast Asia by Typhoon Haiyan, possibly the most powerful storm in recorded history. DW reports on international efforts to get aid to the desperate millions left behind.

Survivors of Typhoon Haiyan wait for aid to be distributed in Tacloban November 16, 2013. Long-delayed emergency supplies flowed into the typhoon-ravaged central Philippines on Saturday, reaching desperate families who had to fend for themselves for days, as the United Nations more than doubled its estimate of homeless to nearly two million.
