This fund will also support longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support Super Typhoon Mangkhut relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines.

Challenge

Thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed in the path of the storm. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding and have asked us to help fund relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support Typhoon Mangkhut preparation, recovery, and relief efforts. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support any necessary longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this forecasted disaster.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are best positioned to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like typhoons. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, there's potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
