The National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) appeals for donations for its Bayanihan Relief and Rehabilitation Program to provide immediate support for communities affected by the recent disasters in the Philippines.
As Filipinos are still heavily hit by the COVID-19 pandemic which affected many people’s health, livelihood, and education, the recent typhoon is expected to worsen the conditions for those in the infected areas. Many residents have been forced to flee their homes and congregate in crowded evacuation centers where they are vulnerable to the spread of disease and infections. Farmers and indigenous people who rely on agricultural livelihood are devastated as heavy rains and landslides led to the destruction of agricultural crops and homes. Students’ classrooms and educational materials in those areas were also destroyed.
As part of our Bayanihan Community Response campaign, NAFCON will consistently respond to the needs of affected communities for relief, rehabilitation, and rebuilding. We will partner with tried-and-tested local community-based organizations to provide timely and effective assistance to the most impacted families and communities.
October 2021 – Typhoon Maring
This October 2021, Typhoon Maring (international name Kompasu) has heavily hit the northern provinces and southwestern Luzon, with many residents of Cagayan Valley, Mimaropa, and Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) seeking refuge, or worse, being fatally affected by the typhoon.
Although the typhoon has left the Philippine area around 11 a.m. on October 12, “Maring” has affected 478 families or 1,638 individuals in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and parts of Palawan.
