According to the OCHA report (Philippines: Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) - Situation Report No. 1) released on December 30, 2021, 6.2 million people were affected, 710,000 houses were damaged, and 560,000 people were evacuated. All of these figures are higher than those as of December 22, 2021 (2.6 million people affected, 160,000 houses damaged, 400,000 evacuees). There are concerns that the figures may increase further in the future, and JPF will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments for support.

Launch of Support Program for the People Affected by Typhoon Rai

25th December 2021

On December 25, JPF decided to launch the support program for people affected by Typhoon Rai, which hit the south-central Philippines. JPF has provided support to sufferers from major typhoons in the Philippines in the past, and will continue to provide support together with experienced member NGOs and local organizations.

●25 December 2021 (Press Release)

On December 25, Japan Platform (JPF; Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) - an emergency humanitarian aid organization established in 2000 in partnership among NGOs, the government, and the business community - decided to launch an emergency response to provide assistance to the people affected by Typhoon Rai (local name: Odette), which hit southern central Philippines. We look forward to receiving your support.

Between December 16 and 18, the Category 5 Typhoon Rai traversed across the Visayas in the Philippines, causing damages in many areas due to strong winds, flooding, and landslides. On December 21, a state of calamity was declared in the six regions. As of December 22, 177 deaths, 275 injuries, and 38 missing persons have been reported. A total of 2.6 million people (or around 680,000 households) were affected, and approximately 160,000 houses were totally or partially damaged*1.

The Philippine government announced on December 19 that it would accept assistance from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and others, and aid coordination efforts have been underway since December 20. Although we do not have sufficient information at this time, shelter, food, WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), and health are among the immediate priority needs in the affected areas.

Considering the severity of the damages and the need for relief in the affected areas, JPF has decided to launch a response. JPF member NGOs will be providing food, shelter, health, and other assistance to the people in need, utilizing their experiences in disaster areas and their partnerships with local organizations.
