Unsinkable bayanihan: One Mega Group Relief Operations calls for donations for Typhoon Ulysses victims  

One Mega Group Relief Operations #RisePH will distribute care packages that contain food, water, and necessities to support at least 1000 Filipino families gravely affected by the typhoon

  • November 13, 2020

After Typhoon Rolly hit the Philippines and caused significant damages to various areas such as Albay, Catanduanes, and Camarines Sur, Filipinos anticipated whether the two coming storms will damage as much. The entire country, however, was caught off guard with the third storm after Rolly, Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco). At least 8000 families residing in low-lying suburbs were forced out of their homes due to high levels of floodwater, with many residents (and house pets) left with no choice but to scramble to their rooftops for safety while waiting for rescue teams. These sad scenarios depict a battered Philippines that is still currently recovering from a previous typhoon, all in the midst of a global pandemic.

While many Filipino families are worried about their sunken homes and spaces, a number of citizens and groups have answered the call to help, proving that the spirit of true bayanihan is unsinkable.
