In the face of Typhoon Odette (Rai) and deepening food insecurity from the pandemic, critical food aid reached hard-to-reach locations through our partners and donors.
Typhoon Odette (Rai) Emergency Response
Typhoon Odette (Rai), classified as a super typhoon, made its landfall in the mid-eastern parts of the country, late in the evening of December 16—just 9 days before Christmas. From its landfall, millions of Filipinos in Visayas and Mindanao were displaced out of their homes.
Rising to the call, Rise Against Hunger Philippines has been working with our partner organizations on ground to bring immediate aid to our kababayans most affected by Typhoon Rai.
As of February 28 this year, we have received a running total of PHP 9,684,642 which has served over 23,287 families in typhoon devastated communities in the coastal areas of the CARAGA region, Dinagat Islands, Bohol, Cebu, Palawan, and Siargao. See full report here.
Please consider making a donation today to ensure that we are able to respond in the wake of Typhoon Rai, and to crises around the globe.
