The National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) calls on community support and coordination of emergency relief efforts for those impacted by Super Typhoon Goni (Rolly), and Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco)
 
Super Typhoon Goni made landfall in the Philippines on Sunday, November 1st, 2020. Hitting the Philippines at 135 mph, it is one of the most severe storms on record since Typhoon Haiyan, a record breaking typhoon that devastated the Eastern Visayas region in November of 2013. Preliminary reports already indicate over 300 houses were buried in the onslaught and more than 22 people were killed. Masbate, Albay, Quezon, Batangas, Catanduanes, and Camarines Sur were a few of the named provinces most affected by the typhoon. Not long after, Typhoon Ulysses struck the Philippines on November 11, 2020 throughout Bicol, Calabarzon, Central Luzon, and Metro Manila. Initial reports count at least 13 fatalities along with hundreds of thousands forced to leave home to escape the danger.
 
The effects of climate change have seen ever more extreme and frequent natural disasters, affecting the Philippines and the most vulnerable populations in particular. The gravity of the current situation in the Philippines is further compounded by the pandemic threat. Reports from our Philippine partner organization on the ground, Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC), mention 346,993 people have been displaced in the wake of Super Typhoon Goni. In addition, 352,509 people were evacuated from their homes in response to Typhoon Ulysses. This raises concerns about the spread of coronavirus in evacuation centers as most of the country remains under lockdown. 
 
Once again, NAFCON appeals to communities in the U.S and worldwide to support those affected by this recent devastation in the Philippines. Amidst the ongoing pandemic and effects of Super Typhoon Goni and Typhoon Ulysses, we must take action to support our fellow kababayans affected during this time. As in past disaster relief efforts, notably after Typhoon Haiyan, NAFCON will be coordinating with community-based, people-to-people grassroots responses to ensure that donations will reach survivors timely and efficiently. With the holidays also fast approaching, let us especially highlight this season of giving."
