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 the 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/Odette devastated the central provinces of the Philippines between December 16 and 18, 2021 with winds up to 160 miles per hour. Close to 2 million people were affected, with 630,000 people made homeless, including approximately 300,000 infants and children. There is an urgent need for food, clean water, medicine, and basic hygiene supplies. Asia America Initiative and our local partners have begun a relief distribution program to assist at least 500 families or 2000 persons.
Super Typhoon Rai (locally named Odette) made landfall on 16 December 2021 in Surigao del Norte Province before crossing the central-southern Philippines, specifically the Visayas and Mindanao Islands, with maximum sustained winds of 195km/h and gustiness of 260km/h. Intensifying from a tropical storm to a super typhoon within hours, Rai brought torrential rains, violent winds, landslides and storm surges, making nine landfalls in seven provinces.
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.
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.
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.
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.
On December16, 2021 Super Typhoon Odette slammed into the eastern coast of the Philippines and cut a wide path of destruction through the Central Visayas region. During that time, many less fortunate residents of this region lost their homes and lively-hoods. The damage was devastating on Olango Island, just of the coast of Mactan, Cebu. This project will focus on purchasing the necessary building materials and essentials to aid Olango Island's residents to rebuild their lives.
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.
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.

WWF-Philippines campaigns to raise funds and provide immediate help and relief to survivors of natural disasters and calamities. The campaign prioritizes the most vulnerable sectors, including our country's environmental frontliners - the fisherfolk, farmers, and farmworkers. The worsening effects of the climate crisis are wreaking havoc on Filipinos' daily lives, but the most vulnerable feel and experience it way worse. In a country like the Philippines - this has become an almost annual event.
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.
