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).
