Super Typhoon Goni (known locally as Rolly) made landfall with sustained winds of 135 miles an hour. This relief fund will support emergency aid like food, water, medicine, and shelter. After initial needs are met, the fund will transition to provide long-term assistance as needed. All donations to this fund will exclusively support Super Typhoon Goni relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines.
Thousands of homes in the Philippines were damaged or destroyed in the path of this category 5 super typhoon and the government reports 400,000 people have been displaced. Local officials are doing the best to deal with evacuations and temporary shelters amid the coronavirus pandemic. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding and have asked us to help fund relief and recovery efforts on the ground.
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Super Typhoon Goni/Rolly. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected.
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. 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.
