Philippines Typhoon Emergency

At least 74 dead in the Philippines following Typhoon Mangkhut.

The death toll from Typhoon Mangkhut has risen to 74 in the Philippines, after the storm, the strongest this year, tore through the Philippines over the weekend.

The typhoon blasted the northern coast of the country, triggering landslides and flash flooding, and leaving a trail of destruction behind it.

The region most severely affected is a key agricultural area in the Philippines, producing most of the country’s rice, corn and other vegetable crops, which have been ruined a month before harvest. This will make food incredibly hard to come by for families who are already vulnerable, and damage the livelihoods of thousands in the region.

The full extent of the damage and is still unknown, but our partner on the ground is already doing everything possible to help people stay safe, assess the damage, and respond to those in urgent need.

Please give now and help us deliver life-saving emergency assistance today.
