More than 13 million people are now known to be affected, with 4 million forced from their homes and more than a million houses either destroyed or damaged.
The immediate need is for clean water, sanitation, food and medicines to prevent diseases, but agencies will also be helping people get their lives back to normal.
Typhoon Haiyan has affected over 13 million people and killed thousands. Over 4 million people are displaced and over 18,000 injured. 1,600 people are still missing. Like most disasters, typhoon Haiyan has hit the poorest and most vulnerable people the hardest.
The typhoon has affected a third of the country's rice-growing areas which, unless planting can begin this December, will potentially leave millions of people without their staple food and a huge loss of income for farmers.
embrace4life is not only taking on the responsibility to provide fresh clean drinking water to the victims of the typhoon but also working on helping farmers to begin planting in order for the people to be able to stand on their own feet for food and nutrition.
When an emergency happens, it's a race against the clock to reach the children who need our help. Sadly in conflicts and emergencies like typhoons and other natural disasters, it's children who are most vulnerable, so it's important we get there fast.
Your gift today could help us give life-saving support to a child affected by a natural disaster, or provide protection for a child caught in the midst of conflict.
Please donate today and help us be there for children in emergencies around the world.
Almost three years ago, Bahrain saw many protesters rise up in revolt against the dictatorship ruling the country. Thousands upon thousands of the public spoke out and participated in various strikes.
This resulted in retaliation with 'excessive force', as the government themselves conceded, killing masses and torturing crucial professionals who stood up, such as doctors and medics who were then sentenced to life imprisonment.
This situation of unrest has not ceased and there continues to be multiple attacks and deaths every day, with much of the population living in fear. Living conditions have plummeted and assistance is inadequate.
Many young children and helpless infants are left without parents or guardians, and many more are orphaned daily. What can we do?
We can answer their calls for help and pleas for a normal life again.
Making donations in small amounts or as cash can be a burden for charities who operate with very little resources.

Ziyarat of holy shrines on your or a beloved one's behalf
Do you wish you could go for Ziyaraat but cannot afford it or do not have the time?
The niyabah ziyaraat are performed by poor individuals, providing them with a source of income, the opportunity to attain nearness to Allah (swt) and their dream of visiting the holy shrines, which they could not afford despite living in the same country. You benefit by having the good deeds done under your name, whilst additionally multiplying your rewards as your donations feed and clothe the poor. All ziyaraat include the two rak'aat salaah.
Performance of the ziyarat is offered to people who do not live locally and who really wish they could go but cannot afford it. The charity wants to make their dreams come true with your help.
Ziyaraat can be performed on any day (even wiladah or shahadah) but we must be notified at least one week in advance to enure the donation has cleared and arrangements have been made. We also require the full name of the individual for whom the ziyarah is to be done. The prices quoted are the minimum requirement to cover the travel and other costs to the place of ziyarah. Additional donations are welcomed as the needy person does not financially benefit from the cost price. The costs of some ziyaraat are higher because of the higher travel costs or inherent difficulties.
