By Mai (Maryann) Zamora, Islamic Relief Philippines
Islamic Relief Philippines, a faith inspired international humanitarian and development organisation, provided aid to 355 families or 1,775 people affected by Typhoon Mangkhut through shelter repair kits and farm inputs in Baggao, Cagayan Valley.
Farm inputs and shelter kits are two of the priority needs identified during the joint assessment conducted by in-country humanitarian organizations to the affected families in the provinces of Cagayan Valley and Cordillera Administrative Region, north Philippines.
Islamic Relief and local partner organisations are assisting rescue and aid efforts in Donggala and Palu, as the death toll from the recent earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia continues to rise and could reach in the thousands.
Staff members from our local partner organisation PKPU drove for over 17 hours and slept on pavements to arrive in Donggala as quick as they could and were among the first to respond. They are helping to clear the rubble, pull out the dead bodies and transport injured people to nearby medical centres.

Humanitarian Crisis in Free Fall
After almost four years of conflict, and despite all efforts to halt displacement, hunger and disease, Yemen remains the worst humanitarian crisis on earth. The suffering inflicted on Yemeni people is entirely manmade and will continue to deteriorate rapidly on all fronts without actions to end the violence.
