Typhoon Mangkhut tore through the Philippines' main island of Luzon leaving a trail of devastation.mangkhut 2

Winds of 185km/h ripped off roofs, felled trees, with heavy rain causing extensive flooding.

The rain also caused over 30 major landslides across tha affected area.

Officially 40 people have died, but the toll  is expected to rise as response teams reach the many rural areas still cut off by the flooding.

With sewerage systems being overwhelmed contaminated water is a major health risk.

The typhoon also flattened homes, flooded large swathes of countryside and devastated rice fields.

At least 5,000,000 million people live in the affected area with many thousands evacuated.

Several evacuation centres have been destroyed and phone networks are down.

 

Our Philippine partner Balay Mindanaw is currently on the way to assist with a Disaster Aid SkyHydrant.

A key purpose of Rotary International is to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.Camarines boy

Probably the greatest humanitarian service is to ensure that people have access to safe drinking water.

Not only does it protect peoples health, but the strong appreciation of the benefit by the recipients builds a reservoir of goodwill to our donors.
