The Prime Minister called President Aquino to offer the UK’s support as the Philippines deal with the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
Following the call, a Downing Street spokesperson said:
The Prime Minister said that our thoughts are with all those affected, especially those who have lost loved ones.
This weekend we announced a package of £6 million emergency humanitarian support to help more than 500,000 people affected by the storm, including temporary shelters and essential household items. We have also sent 4 humanitarian experts to the Philippines to assist 3 advisers already in the country helping to coordinate the international response.
