Challenge

Typhoon Utor has displaced over 280,000 people from their homes. Damages from the flooding are estimated to be over $1 billion. In past years, flooding forced at least 20,000 people to flee their homes and left at least 53 people dead. In December of 2011, flash floods left more than 60,000 homeless and claimed more than 1,500 lives, in the region's worst storm of the year

Solution

GlobalGiving is partnering with several organizations on the ground to provide emergency aid and long term relief to victims. We will post updates on how these funds have been used so that you can see the impact that your donation has had.

Long-Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide relief and long term recovery efforts. In this case, these initial funds will help survivors and victims get necessary services. Over time this fund will transition to support longer term recovery efforts.
