HELP the Typhoon Victims in the Philippines

HAND-TO-MOUTH. That is the type of existence that millions of Filipinos have had even before Typhoon Rolly (international name: Typhoon Goni), world’s strongest typhoon of 2020, hit the Philippines. Beset by widespread unemployment and poverty that have been further exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, Filipinos now find themselves in even direr straits because of the devastation that Typhoon Rolly struck them with.


Here are the numbers:

• Typhoon Rolly is the 18th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year. It had wind gusts of up to 190 mph.
• As per latest count, it had killed 22 people and displaced almost 400,000 families who have very slim chances of saving their now-destroyed homes.
• In the aftermath of Typhoon Rolly, more than 50,000 homes were without power on the main island of Luzon, which accounts for more than two-thirds of the Philippine economy.
• Typhoon Rolly is sandwiched between Typhoon Molave, which killed 22 and another incoming typhoon, typhoon Atsani, which is expected to further pummel an already pummeled nation.
 
We are a group of Filipinos/Filipino-Americans based in New York/New Jersey/ California/ Nevada who aim to pool whatever donations that we can in order to help tragedy-struck Filipinos back in our home country. Please help.

USD$1.00 is equivalent to 50 Philippine Pesos.

What $1.00 can buy:

- 4 loaves of bread/
- 4 pounds of rice/
- 10 toothbrushes/
- 10 soap bars/
- 2 gallons of filtered drinking water

Any amount would be highly appreciated. All donations will be forwarded to Angat Buhay of the Office of the VP. I will share the receipt of funds with all those who donated. Rest assured that we did our due diligence in finding this org and your donation will be used to help rebuild communities. 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE.
