Dear confreres and friends,

Health and peace!

After the tragic super-typhoon Rolly (Goni) at the beginning of November, which left deaths and destructions throughout the Bicol region and the other parts of the island of Luzon with 20 deaths, over 112.000 people displaced, and incalculable damages to properties, the Philippines is now again scourged by another typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) on November 11, 2020.

Typhoon Ulysses, accompanied by an exceptional wind of 155km/h, paralyzed Manila, the nation's capital, with roads suddenly turned into flooded rivers. According to information released by the government (NDRRMC), as of November 12, 2020, at least 14 people have died, and thousands of houses are submerged in water.

These tragic natural events aggravate the already difficult situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has already caused deaths to over 7,700 people. It made the survival of many families affected very precarious.

Faced with this dramatic situation, CADIS (Camillian Disaster Service International) organizes a relief effort through the Camillian Philanthropic and Health Development Office (CPHDO) and Migrante International to assist the survivors.
CADIS appeals to your generosity to make this project possible and effectively demonstrate our solidarity with these disasters' survivors.
