Typhoon Rolly (Goni), a super tropical cyclone struck the Philippines last November 1, 2020. Many homes were destroyed which left 82,900 people displaced.
A week and half later, Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), another powerful typhoon further wreaked havoc. On November 11-12, torrential rains caused flash floods which submerged more houses in many parts of the Philippines, particularly Luzon and Bicol regions. Many families were seen trapped atop their roofs waiting to be rescued. The people in these affected areas were already struggling to survive in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic but now they also have to deal with the aftermath of these storms.

Ulysses increased the number of evacuated and homeless people to 180,000 and caused several deaths and missing persons.
For this week's #WhoAreTheyPhilippines edition, we'll gather upvotes and contributions to be donated to one of the charities helping the victims of those storms. As of now, we are considering Philippines Red Cross but we are also open to your suggestions.
