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.

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.
Help 4000 Odette Victims Have  Food, Water, Power

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.
