How To Help Those Affected By #UlyssesPH and #RollyPH

A guide to importance resources, from donation drives, emergency hotlines, to relief efforts

Last night at 10:30 p.m., Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) made landfall in Patnanungan, Quezon, bringing with it torrential rain and destructive winds. This morning, residents of Metro Manila, Southern Luzon, and Central Luzon woke up to flooded roads and homes as the rain and winds continued to wreak havoc. This calamity comes only two weeks after Super Typhoon Rolly (Goni) devastated the Bicol region, causing the deaths of at least twenty people. 


If you’re looking to help those affected by #UlyssesPH and #RollyPH, here is a guide to important resources, from donation drives to emergency hotlines.
