About the Event

Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) slammed into the Eastern Philippines on 16 December, decimating homes, wiping out water and electricity supplies, and destroying agricultural and tourism-related livelihoods.

10.8 million people are affected.*

The typhoon hit in the middle of the world's worst pandemic in living memory. As well as coping with the rising threat of COVID-19, typhoon-hit communities face health risks due to unclean drinking water and damaged or destroyed health care facilities. Almost 9.5 million people no longer have a roof over their heads. Hundreds of thousands of people remain without electricity and access to basic amenities and food.

Philippine Red Cross has been working alongside authorities and other agencies since the typhoon hit and has already reached hundreds of thousands of people with clean water, hot meals, healthcare, toolkits, building materials, household items, and clothing.

But more resources are urgently needed to continue to meet people's immediate and recovery needs. You can help.

The Nordic Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (NordCham Philippines), Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), together with other supporting organizations, invite you to an event on 22 February 2022 from 3:00 PM - 4:20 PM.

NordCham Philippines, PRC and IFRC have come together to brief the NordCham members and partners' community about the situation, needs, and the emergency appeal to support people in affected communities, in dire need of help.
