Help in the Ongoing Relief Efforts for Typhoon Pablo

Typhoon Pablo, also known by its international codename Bopha, ripped through Southern Philippines on December 4, destroying homes, uprooting trees and leaving some areas in Mindanao and Visayas in total devastation.

Although Philippine authorities were prepared this time as compared to Typhoon Sendong (Tropical storm Washi) in 2011, the death toll continues to rise with the latest government figures putting the number of casualties at 327 as of Thursday, December 6, at 1 pm.

Data released by the National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council (NDRRMC) showed that at least 401 people were reported injured and 378 missing as of Wednesday, December 5 at 11pm.

Out of the 325 deaths, only 29 people have been identified, the disaster management office said. In addition, only one of the hundreds missing has been identified.

Ongoing Relief Efforts

The Filipino community has once again taken to social media to coordinate relief emergencies and operations. Twitter put up a special page for tweets tagged #PabloPH for live updates and important information regarding Typhoon Pablo. Twitter also put up an info page regarding missing persons, important hotlines and ongoing relief operations in the affected areas.


With a total of 229,734 people, or 48,317 families, across 7 regions that have been affected by the typhoon, donations are needed for their recovery.
