While Bicol and some parts of Calabarzon have not yet fully recovered from the wrath of the super typhoon a week ago, Typhoon Ulysses battered Calabarzon again, along with Metro Manila, yesterday on November 12, 2020. It left different communities heavily flooded and devastated.
Social media was also stormed by photos of devastation, showing survivors stranded in their roofs, hoping to be rescued. This distressing situation sought immediate appeal for relief. Wasting no time, several groups responded through a call for donations using #ReliefPh.
Here is a list of organizations that are helping to undo the destruction and rebuild the lives of the affected Filipinos.
