Millions of Filipino children are at risk from Typhoon Mangkhut. Save the Children has deployed a team to respond to the unmet needs of children and families. We are pre-positioning relief items across the country, including household and hygiene kits.
Typhoon Mangkhut threatens millions of children in the Philippines. Heavy rains, flooding and landslides could potentially devastate the island. "We haven't seen a typhoon this powerful hit the Philippines in some time. We're particularly concerned about children and families living in coastal and low-lying communities," Save the Children Philippines CEO Alberto Muyot said.
Save the Children has deployed our emergency response team and we are pre-positioning relief items across the country, including household and hygiene kits. But we need your help to continue this important work.
Save the Children has a long history of responding to typhoons and other disasters in the Philippines and our team stands ready to respond once again. Depending on the extent of the damage, a major humanitarian response may be required.
