Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) Donation Campaign

As the Philippines’ major private sector coordinator for disaster risk reduction and management, the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) is providing support to the country in responding to the impacts brought by Typhoon Rai (Odette).

Typhoon Rai made initial landfall in Siargao Island, northern Mindanao, in the Philippines, on 16 December 2021. It carried gusts up to 270 km/h with maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h.

As of December 21, at least 2.4 million people were affected across ten (10) regions. Around 684,000 people were displaced, with about 440,000 people still in evacuation centers. A total of 139,000 houses have been damaged, out of which 53,800 were completely destroyed.

The private sector and humanitarian organizations are working together to deliver the immediate needs of communities devastated by the Typhoon. PDRF calls for cash and in-kind donations for the communities impacted by Typhoon Rai (Odette). No amount is too small.

Funds raised will be used to address the following immediate needs:

  • Shelter kits
  • Medicine
  • Logistics
  • Food packs
  • Water
  • Fuel
