Typhoon Nalgae in the Philippines

We supported over 1200 families in the Philippines after Typhoon Nalgae caused widespread devastation in October 2022

What happened?

ShelterBox responded in the Philippines after Typhoon Nalgae, known locally as Paeng, affected nearly 6 million people.

The storm hit the Philippines on 28 October 2022, bringing heavy rains and strong winds. The torrential rains triggered flash flooding and landslides, damaging over 63,000 homes.

We worked closely with local partner, IRDT, to provide emergency shelter and essential items to over 1200 families. Aid items included things like shelter kits, solar lights, mosquito nets, blankets and tool kits.
