'Ulysses' hit Luzon hard. Here's how you can help

Christian Deiparine (Philstar.com) - November 12, 2020 - 4:04pm

MANILA, Philippines — (Updated November 17, 5:40 p.m.) Latest figures from the NDRRMC showed that over 3.5 million individuals across eight regions have been affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses (international name Vamco) which struck the Luzon island last week. 

Officials in a November 17 situational report said the typhoon has left at least 73 people dead, 24 injured and 19 still missing. At present, over 283,000 persons are still in evacuation sites, while nearly 159,000 are being assisted outside emergency shelters.

The cost of its damage had since climbed to more than P7.9 billion for agriculture and infrastructure combined, with the Cagayan Region, Central Luzon and CALABARZON among the worst-hit.

Ulysses is the 21st storm to hit the Philippines this year and is part of a number of weather disturbances to entry the country in the previous weeks, which follows through with PAGASA's declaration of the onset of the La Niña, where above normal rainfall conditions will prevail until March 2021.

Here's a running list of groups as of November 17 raising funds for relief operations of the many affected by Ulysses.
