Families are in urgent need of clean water and shelter in the Philippines after the devastating Typhoon Mangkhut. Oxfam staff and partners are currently assessing and responding to immediate needs, although many of the most affected areas remain unreachable. You can help us.

Oxfam assessment teams, together with the Citizens' Disaster Response Center (CDRC) and Cagayan Valley Disaster Response Center have identified an urgent need for clean water and shelter in the most affected areas. A truck carrying clean water and jerry cans is being sent to the region. We are also preparing to distribute materials for shelter, including tarpaulins and ropes. 

Maria Rosario Felizco, Oxfam Philippines Country Director said “Addressing immediate needs are crucial to ensure the immediate safety and dignity of survivors, so we are prioritizing the distribution of water and shelter materials. But we must also anticipate that the survivors of Typhoon Mangkut, especially small fishers and farmers who have lost their source of income, will need support far beyond the first few days of this response."
