SPECIAL HUMANITARIAN COLLECTION 

Typhoon Rai in the Philippines

 

The Rahmatan Lil Alamin (Blessings to all) Foundation (RLAF), in collaboration with Mercy Relief, is organising a collection to address water, sanitation and hygiene needs of communities affected by Typhoon Rai in the Philippines.

Also known as Typhoon Odette, the Category-5 typhoon, the highest classification in the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale, was the deadliest tropical cyclone to have struck the Philippines in 2021. It first made landfall on Siargao Island and has caused severe and widespread damage throughout several provinces in the Philippines. To date, it has resulted in at least 405 deaths, 82 reported missing and 1,147 injured. More than 660,000 residents had been displaced and 2 million lives affected.

For this reason, the RLAF is conducting an online collection via multiple platforms starting Monday, 17 January to 22 January 2022 to assist in providing access to safe drinking water, better sanitation and hygiene to communities affected.
