Your support is needed


We’re in the middle of an incredibly busy time, and our resources are pushed to the limit. 

In addition to Super Typhoon Goni, Typhoon Atsani made landfall in Batanes province just days later. Another typhoon is expected to hit the Philippines on Wednesday. Families have already endured so much in the last few weeks, and these additional storms bring an additional layer of fear and uncertainty.

Another life-threatening storm, Hurricane Eta, has wreaked havoc across several countries in Central America and the Caribbean. We are actively monitoring reports from both regions and are making preparations for a potential response.

Meanwhile our coronavirus response continues, supporting families who need shelter and essential items to protect themselves from the deadly virus. This week’s powerful storms are a stark reminder that disasters don’t stop for coronavirus.

Your support is needed now more than ever.
