Habitat for Humanity Philippines is already on high alert and is currently preparing its Disaster Response for Typhoon Hagupit (local name: RubyPH), which as reported say, can affect up to 12 million Filipinos.
While Habitat for Humanity Philippines is presently working on rebuild and rehabilitation efforts for survivors of Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), which left an estimated 7,000 dead and 4 million people affected, our work does not stop there.
Already, Habitat is anticipating the potential need, as another disaster - Typhoon Hagupit - nears its estimated landfall, and has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility last December 4 with Haiyan-like proportions. Many of the survivors are feared to suffer a similar fate. As the newest weather updates have indicated, Hagupit has changed its course to affect new areas such as the Bicol province and potentially, the capital of Manila.
Your donation will further help Habitat provide shelter relief and rehabilitation, clean water, vital rehabilitation equipment to survivors.

In response to Haiyan/Yolanda, Habitat for Humanity, along with its local and international affiliates, donors and volunteers, have distributed more than 23,000 House Repair Kits, and are ongoing with building new homes and community infrastructures.
We appeal for your generous and continued support, as each amount that you will donate to Habitat will impact on the rehabilitation efforts and building back better in response to each disaster.
