The world’s strongest storm this year, Goni carved a trail of destruction across the Philippines. Goni arrived on the heels of two other typhoons while the country also struggles with one of the region’s worst coronavirus outbreaks. Over 2 million people in 125 cities and towns are without electricity. At least 20 people have been confirmed dead, with death counts expected to rise as damage assessments continue in areas cut off from the outside world.
UMCOR is actively partnering with leaders in the Philippines United Methodist Church.
