Super Typhoon Rolly, known locally as Goni, made landfall in the Philippines last October with a sustained wind speed of 134 mph. The storm tragically killed at least 20 people and affected more than 3.3 million across eight regions, with extensive damage to housing, infrastructure, transportation, and quality of life. The storm’s effects have been compounded by the larger COVID-19 pandemic and other storms that made landfall in close succession. The top priorities for our local nonprofit partners include food assistance, cash or food for work, shelter repair kits, repair of water and sanitation facilities, and distribution of hygiene kits.
GlobalGiving’s vetted nonprofit partners have been on the ground in the Philippines responding to the storms, even as climate change continues to exacerbate the challenges facing low-lying coastal communities. Here’s what your donation has helped accomplish since the storm struck the Philippines:
Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) launched an emergency response to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable communities within the Albay and Quezon provinces were met. Working closely with farming communities whose crops were damaged by the storms, CDRC provided immediate food assistance to more than 650 families.
Climate Change Network for Community-based Initiatives distributed emergency relief supplies, such as hygiene kits, food, and medicine, in Bicol and Central Luzon. Working in close coordination with its grassroots climate partners, the organization has been able to work within communities to address their most urgent needs.
The Mustard Seed Mission responded by establishing a three-week emergency food relief plan. Focusing on vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, pregnant women, and households led by women, they supported 650 families in Albay Province.
Thank you for your ongoing support to the most vulnerable communities as they respond to the ongoing impacts of the super typhoon, COVID-19, and the escalating climate crisis.
