Typhoon Rai slammed into the eastern Philippines on Thursday, 16 December ravaging islands and coastal communities in the eastern Philippines and carving a path of devastation, flooding towns and cities across the country.

The super storm has caused widespread flooding for millions of people hit hard by the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the devastation caused by the typhoon, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has launched an Emergency Appeal for 20 million Swiss francs to fund urgent relief and longer term recovery efforts for an estimated 400,000 people.

The Philippines is struck by around 20 typhoons a year, with climate change intensifying the risk of more powerful and frequent storms.
