On Christmas Day, Typhoon Ursula (international name: Phanfone) struck the Philippines barreling across Samar, Iloilo, Kalibo, Boracay, Antique and Oriental Mindoro leaving a trail of major destruction, severe damages, homeless families and rising death tolls. Many trees and utility posts have fallen resulting to limited supply of power, communication, fuel, food and other basic needs.
We would like to ease the burden and bring hope to the affected families of the recent Typhoon Ursula as the New Year rolls in.

Tropical Cyclone: WARNING
Issued at 08:00 pm, 23 December 2019
(Valid for broadcast until the next bulletin to be issued at 11:00 pm today.)
TROPICAL STORM “URSULA” MAINTAINS ITS STRENGTH AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARDS EASTERN VISAYAS.
On December 23 2019, Typhoon Ursula, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Ursula, is set to become one of the largest tropical storm/cyclone to make landfall in 2019 in Philippines.
While winds are not estimated to be as high as almost 200 mph (in the case of Yolanda), the devastation caused by the storm could leave an estimated 10,000 people injured and thousands homeless, without access to food, electricity, clean water, or safe infrastructure.
Now is the time to help, when need is critical and awareness is highest.
We are an organization of individuals raising funds to directly aid Filipinos in the communities most effected by this tragedy.
Maximum sustained winds of 75 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph
At 7:00 PM today, the center of Tropical Storm “URSULA” was estimated based on all available data at 625 km East of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte (10.1 °N, 131.2 °E )
Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal no.
We will divide the total amount of donations into 3 equal parts:
We will work with local charities such as Lions Club International and other Foundations in the affected area(s). As for the other places, we will work directly with volunteers we know personally who will be out there doing ground work– they will re-pack and distribute rice and food to as many families in those towns.
All distribution of foods/items will also be documented via photos/videos. There is no pressure or minimum – any help is welcome and we would be incredibly grateful for your support.
This will be an ongoing process so we will continue this gofundme page even when we surpass our goal.
