Philippines Typhoon Ulysses Resources

Philippines Typhoon Ulysses: Resources To Help Those Affected

Typhoon Ulysses (internationally known as Typhoon Vamco) hit the Philippines on November 11th 2020. 

Known as the deadliest typhoon in the Philippines this year, Ulysses tore through the main island of Luzon leaving 67 dead and 22 missing. 

The extensive flooding from the typhoon also destroyed thousands of homes, leaving numerous communities homeless and vulnerable amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Typhoon Ulysses hit the Philippines just as the country was reeling from Typhoon Rolly (internationally known as Typhoon Goni), the world’s strongest typhoon this year which hit the Philippines on November 1st 2020. 

Both of these deadly typhoons have affected more than 1.6 million people in the Philippines. 

They have also come at an unfortunate time when the Philippines is already suffering from a large surge in COVID-19 infections. 

If you’re looking to help those affected by Typhoon Ulysses and Rolly, here is a guide to important resources for relief efforts, donation drives and emergency hotlines.
