Super Typhoon Rai — known locally as Odette — recently wreaked havoc in the Philippines. It is the 15th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year.
While the exact death toll is still unknown and it will be some days before we know the full extent of the damage caused by the storm, we do know that countless people have lost their homes and many more have dwindling access to food and water.
We have compiled the following list of organizations collecting funds for relief efforts. Please note that, while we have done our best to verify the legitimacy of each listing, it is up to the donor to research the organization and Samahan is not responsible for how their donation is used. We have no affiliation with any of the following but are simply gathering requests for aid in one place for your convenience. This is by no means a complete list, and we will be adding to it in the coming days.
