Fallen tree in front of a house in Brgy. Afusing Bato in Alcala, Cagayan. — ACT/AC Dimatatac

Super Typhoon Mangkhut (local name “Ompong”)  has put regions in the Philippines, China and neighboring areas in a state of crisis. In the Philippines, the typhoon affected those with many unmet vital humanitarian needs such as access to: sufficient food, safe shelter and basic non-food items, safe drinking water, as well as sanitation and hygiene infrastructure, and livelihood activities. We have received reports of over 40 people dead due to landslides, with another 40 individuals missing. In China, more than 2.5 million people have been evacuated in Guangdong and on the Hainan island. 

Top priority is to provide immediate assistance to minimize loss of life and to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable are covered first.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, through our partners on the ground, including ACT Alliance and UCCP, is responding to this disaster. Designate gifts to DR000194-Mangkhut to support our response.
