Typhoon "Mangkhut": How are the people in the Philippines?
For the people in the Philippine province Benguet, who long for a rest after the typhoon “Mangkhut”, there is no end in sight yet. After a landslide had destroyed many houses, the inhabitants had sought refuge in their neighbour´s homes. Now the Itogon community had to be evacuated completely as the unstable weather conditions were likely to cause further dangerous mudslips.
Our two emergency forces Christiane Bähr and Felix Mittag, who were on site with the team of our partner organization PHILRADS, had the chance to talk to Judith. After the storm, she and her family have taken in neighbours, who had lost their home. Now she, too, had to leave her home village for safety reasons.
The people in the Philippines are still in dire need of our help. Thank you so much for your support!
