Typhoons Goni (Rolly) and Vamco (Ulysses) struck the Philippines and wreaked havoc on several towns in Luzon.

Super Typhoon Goni, this year’s strongest typhoon in the world, brought a catastrophe that resulted to dozens of deaths, with over 500,000 families affected, and more than 20,000 houses damaged, mostly in the Bicol region. More than a week after its devastation, Typhoon Ulysses, with its howling winds and torrential rains, flooded cities and towns in different parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila. The aftermath of these two typhoons has exacerbated the vulnerability of affected families to COVID-19 and the urgency to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, especially in evacuation centers and vulnerable communities.

At this time of pandemic, everyone is asked to stay at home. However, not everyone has a decent home to stay safe.

Millions of Filipinos living in cramped housing are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection.

The global pandemic has magnified the housing problem as everyone is forced to stay at home. In Metro Manila alone, roughly 4 million Filipinos lack a decent place to live. They are living in overcrowded spaces inadequate for physical distancing, in an unhealthy outbreak-prone environment, or worse, without a roof, walls, or sanitation facilities to protect them from the virus. But with everyone’s support and contribution, we can emerge from the crisis stronger together and help vulnerable families RISE through safe and decent shelter. Our work has never been more urgent, and we need YOU to RISE with us now, more than ever. Help us build homes, communities, and hope and provide families the foundation for a brighter and healthier life.
