Typhoon Vamco made landfall in the Philippines on November 11, causing the evacuation of more than 180,000 people.

Referred to as Ulysses in the Philippines, the storm impacted many of the same communities that were devastated by Super Typhoon Goni just 10 days earlier. The series of typhoons have ravaged most of the country, destroying homes, livelihoods and even lives.

The Partido Lakas ng Masa is conducting relief operations in its affected communities, including Bulacan, Manila, Quezon City, Taguig and Marakina.

The party is appealing to international networks and supporters for financial donations to support this relief work.

Donations can be sent to: Transform Asia Gender and Labor Institute Inc.
