This year’s active tropical storm season is impacting both sponsors and sponsored communities globally, which is why we are closely monitoring the powerful Typhoon Mangkhut that made landfall in the northern Philippines today.
Our communities in Manila and Bicol are over 300 miles south of the affected area and are expected to remain safe. Our agencies in the field are still taking precautions to keep sponsored kids, their families and CI staff & volunteers safe and informed from any residual impact in these regions.
We will stay in close contact with field staff to stay up to date on our sponsored populations and provide any updates here on our Facebook page as needed. All of us at Children International are sending our thoughts and prayers to those in the devastating path of Typhoon Mangkhut.
