    Super Typhoon Lando
    (internationally named Koppu) made landfall last Sunday, October 18, in the Philippines passing through provinces in the northern Luzon. The slow moving typhoon brought with it devastating wind and rain forcing many areas to evacuate in the midst of flood, flying debris, loss of electricity and damaged roads and bridges. 

    According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, severely hit areas include Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and Cordillera Administrative Region. 14,000 people from these areas have evacuated with 4,000 families staying in evacuation centers. 

    “In any event of disasters, children are the most vulnerable,” says UNICEF. “Following a typhoon, children face risks from contaminated water sources, lack of food, epidemics such as cholera, hypothermia, diarrhea and pneumonia.”
