Super Typhoons, Goni (Rolly) and Ulysses (Vamco), pummeled across the Philippines over a week ago have left massive destruction in communities already hit hard by heavy storms in recent weeks.
According to the latest report from the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), key figures show that there are 24 million people in severely affected areas, 845,000 people in need of assistance, and $45.5 million in funding is requested. The same report says there are at least 24 dead, 399 injured, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
ABS-CBN Foundation International’s HELP4PH Relief Fund will continue to provide calamity victims with food packs of rice and canned goods, hot meals for the temporary shelters, medical assistance and supplies, mats, hygiene kits, and protection from COVID-19 for those in cramped evacuation centers.
Recently, the SARI NOT SARI campaign brought together Filipino DJs from around the world to raise funds to help the ABS-CBN Foundation continue their humanitarian efforts in the region. They have raised thousands already and hope to raise over $500,000 PhP ($12K USD) over 4 weekends in November. Click here to donate to the ABS-CBN Foundation on Tiltify.
