Philippines Typhoon Relief Fund

Summary

Tropical Storm Vinta (internationally named Tembin) caused devastating flash floods and landslides in the Philippines. More than 200 people are dead, and 160 are missing. This fund will provide relief to people impacted by the storm in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine, in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support disaster relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines.

Challenge

Severe rains caused flash flooding and landslides in the Philippines, destroying homes and villages. The provinces of Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur were hit particularly hard. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their preparation for relief and recovery.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for areas in the Philippines affected by the storm. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these storms. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
