International aid groups ask for support to help the Philippines

International aid groups have called for donations from all over the world for their relief efforts in the affected areas, mostly in the Visayas and Bicol region, of typhoon “Ruby” (International name: Hagupit).

World Vision has set up a disaster relief fund page asking supporters to donate at least $50, noting that many of Hagupit’s victims are also victims of 2013’s super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has also set up a page where people can donate.

Meanwhile, World Food Programme (WFP) also called for financial support in its page while its USA office has called on supporters to donate using their mobile phones.

International Committee of the Red Cross have set-up a page intending to unite families separated by the typhoon.

Oxfam International for its part said it has prepared household water and hygiene kits for victims of “Ruby.”
