Massive rains from Tropical Storm Ketsana have caused severe flooding. As of 10/1, the death toll is 277, and hundreds of thousands of residents have lost their homes.
This Fund will work with project partners to supply displaced residents with food, shelter, and other basic necessities in the wake of the storm. Manila and its close-in provinces have borne the brunt of the massive storm, and the number of those affected and in need of assistance is still being assessed.
Provide food, water, emergency medical supplies and housing to residents displaced and affected by Tropical Storm Ketsana, which caused massive flooding and loss of life in the Philippines.
Help residents of the Philippines recover from the severe effects of Tropical Storm Ketsana.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
