Summary

Typhoon Mangkhut (local name, Typhoon Ompong) hit the Philippines on Saturday, September 15, packing rain and winds of up to 165 mph. Northern Luzon island was hardest hit, affecting 250,000 individuals. Gawad Kalinga's Philippine operations team mobilized as early as Friday, preparing evacuation shelters and food for the displaced. $10,500 will feed 5,000 people for a week. Damaged roofs will be repaired at $250 per home, while farms and fishing boats can be repaired at $800 each.

Challenge

Over 250,000 people, half in Northern Luzon, have been displaced due to the rain and winds brought on by Typhoon Mangkhut on September 15, 2018. These displaced families and individuals have made their way to evacuation centers. Gawad Kalinga, with existing operational infrastructure in the hardest-hit areas, began mobilizing resources at these centers as early as September 14 in anticipation of these refugees. GK is a critical community partner in support of these evacuation centers.

Solution

By helping us fund the Typhoon Mangkhut feeding program, you will bring meals directly into the hands of the displaced and newly homeless, or much-needed repairs to homes and livelihood for farmers and fisherfolk. Your help will buy them valuable time as they rebuild their lives after the typhoon.

Long-Term Impact

250,000 refugees from Typhoon Mangkhut have a long road ahead of them as they rebuild their lives and homes in the aftermath of this super storm. Your contribution of a warm, healthy meal, repairs to homes, schools and livelihood capital, will sustain not only their bodies, but also their souls, in preparation for the long road ahead.
