Typhoon Haiyan

Typhoon Haiyan has affected 11 million people in the Philippines. Up to 1.5 million are over 50.

With our partners, we're on the ground providing tens of thousands of older people with the food, water and shelter they urgently need. We're also working with older volunteers to provide emotional support to other older victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Anacleta is 77 and a widow. She said: "My house has almost completely collapsed. I've lived here for 25 years.

"I'm still sleeping here. We have nowhere else to go. I climb a plank to get to the house and sleep on a slope. My greatest need is to repair my house."
