People across the Philippines have been hit by Typhoon Mangkhut, one of the strongest typhoons to hit the islands since Haiyan in 2013.
Known locally as Ompong, the typhoon has caused much destruction. While many communities were prepared for the storm, there is an ongoing concern that landslides and flash floods may exacerbate the damage caused by the initial typhoon.
Christian Aid is particularly concerned for those communities in more remote mountainous areas who are extremely vulnerable.
In many areas, people’s harvest was days away from being ready but has now been lost. Combined with high inflation, there are longer-term concerns around food security.
Please donate to the Philippines Typhoon Mangkhut Appeal so we can help communities rebuild and recover.
How we are responding
Our partners are on the ground in the Cagayan, Isabela and Kalinga provinces, assessing the impact and identifying people’s needs.
Through these partners, cash assistance will be given to support families in accessing basic needs immediately after the typhoon.
They will also help existing community groups, organisations and institutions identify, design and implement projects or actions to respond to their exact needs.
