Update for Typhoon Mangkhut (Ompong) Relief Effort

By David Zarraga | Board Member, Gawad Kalinga USA

The Gawad Kalinga USA team is happy to provide an update regarding the disbursement of donations received in support of Typhoon Mangkhut relief efforts.

Gawad Kalinga is focusing its efforts post-typhoon to the rehabilitation of the farming economy in the hardest-hit locale in the Philippines: Aparri, in Cagayan province. GK has partnered with the Aparri local government to purchase replacement farming implements and supplies for Aparri farmers, whose farms were devastated by the flooding and rains brought on by Typhoon Mangkhut. Without help in this critical area, these farmers and their families, as well as the economy of farm-centric Aparri, will suffer tremendously.

Because implements and supplies will be purchased in preparation for the start of the farming cycle in January, the funds generated by this campaign are still at Gawad Kalinga Philippines, awaiting disbursement as the farmers identify the implements and supplies needed. Once these are identified, GK will disburse the funds and help the farmers purchase the supplies in late December, in time for the start of planting season and the April harvest.

Thank you for your support for the hardest-hit families in Cagayan province. We will provide an update early next year after the farming supplies and implements have been purchased.

May you and your loved ones have a blessed holiday season!

Thank you,

David Zarraga and the Gawad Kalinga USA team
