Super Typhoon Rai/Odette Relief Fund

What's Happening and How to Help

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.

The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Super Typhoon Rai/Odette Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.

Philippines Super Typhoon Rai/ Odette Relief Fund
Super Typhoon Rai, locally named Odette, caused a devastating damage in the Philippines when it struck, killing 407 people and leaving more than 1,360,203 houses damaged. This relief fund will urgently support emergency aid like food, drinking water and face masks. By providing 500 FOOD/WASH packs to the most-affected households.
Super Typhoon Rai Relief and Recovery Project
Super Typhoon Rai (local name: Odette) devastated large areas in Mindanao and we are mounting relief and recovery initiative in order to assist those who are badly affected. We will focus our assistance in remote villages in Surigao where help maybe long in coming. Initially, we will provide food packs, mosquito nets, blankets and kitchen utensils and graduating to implement small-scale livelihood activities such as vegetable gardening and the construction of water and sanitation facilities.
Typhoon Odette (Rai) Response in the Philippines
The project aims to help the typhoon victims, particularly the sericulture/silk farmers whose houses and sources of livelihood were damaged by the disaster. OISCA aims to immediately provide the materials needed for the reconstruction of houses and rearing houses for silkworms.
Supertyphoon Rai Relief Project
Rai (Odette) devastated many areas also in the Visayas. We have mounted a response by focusing on the distribution of food packs and hygiene supplies for hard to reach villages in Maasin, Southern Leyte. Our experience with past calamities is that the focus of support usually happen in accessible areas or in areas very visible in the news (like Siargao and Dinagat). We will target 1,500 beneficiaries in this response focusing on food, hygiene supplies and later on providing small livelihoods.
Low-cost Sanitation for Typhoon Odette Survivors
We will replicate the activities we did when Typhoon Haiyan devastated Leyte by providing low-cost pour-flush toilets, water filters and water systems this time for families affected by Typhoon Odette. We will target 1,500 families in the provinces of Southern Leyte and Surigao.
Super Typhoon Odette Food and Sanitation Project
We will repair and install latrines damaged by Super Typhoon Rai/Odette in Dinagat Island and Surigao aside from the provision of food packs and gardening supplies. Right now there are thousands of coconut trees felled down by the typhoon and we will use this resource in order to build the latrines. Our goal is to prevent second wave of disaster caused by diseases. Our gardening initiative will help ensure continuity of local food supply.
Super Typhoon Odette Relief for Young Farmers
We will provide immediate assistance to young farmers affected by Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) by the provision of mats, blankets, mosquito nets and solar lamps and then in the next few weeks by the provision of farming inputs like seeds, farm tools and fertilizer. We will focus our assistance in areas hardest hit in the province of Misamis Oriental where we have our office, logistics and volunteers.
Super Typhoon Odette Emergency Response in Siargao
This project will support Global Peace Foundation Philippines' emergency response efforts for hundreds of families affected by Super Typhoon Odette in Siargao, Surigao Del Norte in the Philippines. Each family will receive emergency supplies (food and medicine), water purifier, and solar lantern to assist them as they recover and rebuild.
Help 4000 Odette Victims Have  Food, Water, Power
The project intends to help at least 4000 individuals mostly farmers in Talibon Trinidad Bohol, our former project areas damaged by Typhoon Odette (internationally codenamed Rai) last December 16 as they cry for help while scrambling for scarce water, food, electricity, fuel and housing materials. It also seeks to purchase rice and vegetable seedlings, construction materials to rebuild their homes and their community rice milling infrastructure among others as contribution to recovery

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

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.
