Eight months after Typhoon Odette, Caub Island residents still fear water shortage crisis.

Just days away from Christmas, Super Typhoon Odette (international name Rai) wreaked havoc in several provinces across Mimaropa, Visayas, and Mindanao after making its first landfall in Siargao in the afternoon of December 16. As of writing, over three million families are affected by power outages, food and drinking water are scarce,  phone reception is intermittent, and the death toll has risen to over 100.

While this time of the year is typically the period for festivities and cheer, many families, especially in the hardest-hit areas, are spending Christmas in evacuation centers and in need of help. Through these donation drives, you can help communities get back on their feet again:
