"Super Typhoon #Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) is this year's most powerful tropical storm and is also the latest natural disaster to strike a country already reeling from monsoon flooding and a massive earthquake that struck in October.
UNICEF is appealing for US$ 61.5 million (approximately RM 185 million) to meet the urgent needs of hundreds of thousands of children who fought to survive #Haiyan, but now need life-saving aid to survive the aftermath. "
