How to help: Organizations offering relief to Typhoon Haiyan survivors.

Typhoon Haiyan affected a total of 9.5 million people across the Philippines -- and displaced at least 600,000 -- when it slammed into the country on Friday, according to the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Survivors were described as being in desperate need of clean drinking water and food.

"In some cases the devastation has been total," Secretary to the Cabinet Rene Almendras told a news conference. 

Haiyan is estimated to have destroyed about 70 to 80 percent of structures in its path as it tore into the coastal provinces of Leyte and Samar.

Officials say that 10,000 may have died after the devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines. As survivors assess the damage, Joseph Curry, with Catholic relief services says that victims are in desperate need of help rebuilding their homes.

The United States said it is fully committed to helping the Philippines recover, and is providing $20 million in immediate aid, but the need is massive.
