The Philippines leads the world in natural disasters. In September 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut delivered destruction to the northern Philippines causing 105,000 homeless. These areas were heavily damaged in 2013 by Super Typhoon Haiyan and in 2017 Typhoon Vinta. Asia America Initiative with our local partners are conducting long-term relief and providing food and water to thousands of affected families. We also provide shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines and ongoing post-trauma services.
