More than 345,158 families or 1,436,997 persons* in Regions I, II, III, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, NCR, and CAR have been affected by Typhoon Ompong (internationally known as Mangkhut), which ravaged most of Northern Luzon with devastating winds and heavy rains last weekend.

The demand for relief assistance in these areas continues. In its most recent report, DSWD stated that 13,949 families or 54,935 individuals* are still in 391 evacuation centers* and that there are more families outside evacuation centers living with their relatives and friends. Furthermore, more than 44,599 houses* were reported to have been damaged by the typhoon.

PDRF has been participating in various rapid damage assessments and needs analyses (RDANAs) in the past few days, and based on initial findings, the priority needs of affected families are as follows:

  • Food and water assistance
  • Hygiene kits
  • Shelter repair kits
  • Solar lamps
  • Cash assistance for the repair of damaged homes 

With your support, we can help these families get back on their feet.  

*Stats are based on the  latest DSWD DROMIC Report #20 on Typhoon Ompong  (20 September 2018, 4:00 AM) and are hence  still subject to change.

About us:
After the devastation of typhoons Fengshen (local name: Frank), Ketsana (local name: Ondoy) and Parma (local name: Pepeng), the Office of the President issued Executive Order No. 838 to create the Special National Public Reconstruction Commission (Public Commission) to spearhead effective reconstruction measures to address the needs of disaster-stricken communities. In its aim to create a formidable support for its reconstruction programs, the Public Commission was mandated to tap the resources of the private sector. With this, leaders of some of the country's largest private corporations and non-government organizations (NGOs) have come together to form the Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation (PDRF). In October 23, 2009, the Public Commission and PDRF drew a cooperation agreement to further solidify the commitment of the private sector support to assist in the reconstruction programs of the Philippine government. In 2013, the Philippines braved through successive large-scale disasters--the civil unrest in Zamboanga, the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Bohol and Cebu and the world's strongest recorded cyclone Super Typhoon Haiyan (local name: Yolanda). Following these crises, PDRF has been reorganized and intensified as the umbrella organization of the private sector for disaster preparedness, relief and recovery. Corresponding programs are focused on the post-disaster revival and recovery of five (5) key sectors - shelter, livelihood, education, environment and water, infrastructure, sanitation and health (WISH). In 2015, PDRF formally changed its name to Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation to capture the entire disaster risk reduction and management framework.
