I arrived in the Philippines four days ago, just 24 hours after Super Typhoon Mangkhut made landfall. Three days after landing in Manilla, we have already managed to do our first emergency distribution. I am proud of our team! We have been running around non-stop, doing assessments and purchasing material so that we could distribute relief items as soon as possible.

Itogon – Super Typhoon Mangkhut (known locally as Ompong), slammed into the Philippines on 15 September, leaving fields of destroyed crops, landslides and damaged homes in its wake. While an estimated 364,823 families in 30 provinces across Luzon were affected, the government’s preparedness plan and pre-emptive evacuation of thousands of families kept the loss of life to a minimum, according to the UN Migration Agency (IOM).
Heavy rain during the last week triggered a massive landslide in Naga city (Cebu Province, Central Visayas Region, central Philippines) on 20 September, resulting in casualties and damage.
According to media reports, as of 21 September at 7.30 UTC, at least 12 people are dead, 50 more are missing and 14 houses have been damaged.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN —
After a super-typhoon killed 6,200 people five years ago, Filipinos figured the experience had taught their country a lesson. Pre-storm warnings and disaster responses should improve, then-president Benigno Aquino said.
This month another super-typhoon killed at least 74 when it set off landslides in the Philippine central mountain range.
As part of the early recovery and rehabilitation for Typhoon Ompong victims, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), through its Field Office (FO) in Region I, is set to grant P20 million to Ilocos Norte for a cash-for-work (CFW) project to generate temporary employment for affected families in the province.
The project will be implemented under the DSWD’s Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation (CCAM) program which focuses on alleviating the long-term impacts of climate change.
