The Philippines has been ravaged by four typhoons in less than a month. Hundreds of thousands have been affected and displaced.
Typhoon Rolly (Goni) is the strongest typhoon of 2020 so far and is the strongest typhoon to ever make landfall in recorded history. The most recent typhoon, Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), devastated the island group of Luzon. Ulysses poured a month’s worth a rain upon Metro Manila in 24 hours, much like what happened 11 years ago with the devastating Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana).
As the country recovers to fight another day, we are asking for help from our local and international allies to donate and help rebuild the lives of the most affected Filipinos.
All proceeds will go to the communities affected by the typhoon, particularly Greater Metro Manila, Bicol, and Cagayan Valley where the urban poor, farmers, and fisherfolk have been impacted significantly.

The first photo is from Bicol as it was ravaged by two typhoons a week apart. The second photo shows the situation in Bacoor, Cavite where just after Typhoon Rolly hit, the houses were engulfed in flames due to a fire, which is suspected to be an intentional effort to displace the community and make way for a reclamation project.
Our initial target is PHP 120,000.00 to provide relief packs for 170 families affected in the Bicol region. For the NCR urban poor communities and the fishing community ravaged by typhoons and fires in Bacoor, Cavite, we are still assessing the amount needed and we update our target once we have it.
November 14, 2020 Update: We are now also looking into expanding our relief operations to communities in Cagayan Valley.
November 15, 2020 Update: We have reached our Phase 1 target of PHP 147,000 for communities in the Bicol region and the Greater Metro Manila region. We are now collecting donations for our Phase 2 target of PHP 250,000 for communities in the Cagayan Valley region and the Metro Manila area.
November 16, 2020 Update: We’ve reached our Phase 2 target of PHP 250,000 for communities in Cagayan Valley and Metro Manila. We are now collecting donations for our Phase 3 target of PHP 350,000 for communities in the Cagayan Valley region and the Greater Metro Manila area.
November 18, 2020 Update: We’ve reached our Phase 3 target of PHP 350,000 for communities in Cagayan Valley and the Greater Metro Manila area. We are now collecting donations for our (tentatively) final Phase 4 target of PHP 270,000 for more communities in the Cagayan Valley region, as well as communities in Catanduanes.
November 29, 2020 Update: We’ve reached all our targets. After coordinating with affected communities, we will rechannel the entirety of the Phase 4 donations to the Bicol region. Thank you so much for your donations!
Filipinos are drowning because of the climate crisis caused by the inaction of world leaders. We need your help. Help rebuild lives.
