Habitat for Humanity Philippines’ Official Media Release #1 – Typhoon Hagupit.

Habitat  for  Humanity  has  launched  an  appeal  to  assist  families  affected  by  Typhoon  Hagupit  (called  Ruby  in  the  Philippines).  The  storm  made  first  landfall  on  Samar,  an  island  in  the  Visayas,  Philippines,  late  in  the  evening  of  Saturday,  6th of  December.

According  to  the  Philippines  National  Disaster  Risk  Reduction  and  Management  Council,  more  than  130,000   families  were  evacuated  in  six  regions  of  the  Philippines.

Habitat  for  Humanity  is  sheltering  evacuated  families  in  Leyte,  Cebu  and  Surigao  del  Sur  provinces  of  the   Philippines.  Staff  and  materials  are  prepositioned  and  we  will  begin  to  support  affected  families  to  repair  their   homes.  The  more  funds  we  raise,  the  more  families  we  can  help,”  said  Charlie  Ayco,  Habitat  for  Humanity   Philippines’  CEO  and  Managing  Director.

Habitat  for  Humanity  is  appealing  for  funds  to  assist  families  and  help  them  rebuild  their  lives  and  gain  access  to   decent  shelter.  Habitat  staff  are  on  the  ground  ready  to  assess  the  situation  and  coordinate  with  government   agencies  and  other  partners  on  the  disaster  response  operations.

Typhoon  Hagupit  comes  just  13  months  after  Typhoon  Haiyan  killed  6,300  people  and  damaged  or  destroyed   more  than  one  million  homes,  according  to  government  figures.  To  date  Habitat  for  Humanity  Philippines  has   supported  nearly  28,000  Haiyan-­‐affected  families  with  emergency  shelter  and  shelter  repair  kits  and  begun   construction  of  core  houses  at  ten  sites  in  Cebu  and  Leyte  provinces.
