12. Why are you collecting for Typhoon Rai in the Philippines and Malaysia flood survivors now?

The floods in Malaysia and Typhoon Rai in the Philippines had resulted in the loss of lives and severe and widespread destruction of property, causing hardship and suffering to many communities in both countries. Severe property destruction and damage had certainly resulted in a loss of income and impacted livelihoods. As such, besides immediate disaster relief response, aid is also needed in the recovery and rebuilding of lives towards what had been before.
