Typhoon Bopha Emergency Relief in the Philippines

by Peace Winds America Vetted since 2011 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified


The destructive "Typhoon Bopha" (or Pablo) made landfall on the eastern coast of Mindanao early December 4. Torrential rain and strong winds toppled trees and power lines, destroyed houses and roads, and caused floods and mudslides and forced more than 300,000 to seek refuge in evacuation centers. Peace Winds America (PWA) and its local partner, Citizens' Disaster Response Center (CDRC), are responding by distributing relief supplies to affected families in Compostela Valley.

"Typhoon Bopha" has caused massive destruction, resulting thousands to be displaced. The typhoon also has claimed hundreds of deaths. Heavy floods and mudslides are ravaging Mindanao, particularly Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon regions. Many communities remain isolated because of floods and destroyed roads.


This fund will support emergency relief efforts of some of the hardest hit communities by Typhoon Bopha. PWA, through our local partner, Citizen's Disaster Response Center (CDRC), is distributing emergency relief packages to 767 families in 7 communities in the severely devastated Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon regions. Relief packages include food, blankets, shelter and sanitary items and other emergency supplies in need.

Long-Term Impact

PWA is providing emergency relief to families affected by the disaster. Together with CDRC, PWA is targeting 767 families from seven communities in Mindanao. Reconstruction of homes and roads will help restore stabilities and livelihood.
