Program Summary 

Disaster Profile

Typhoon Mangkhut, known locally as Ompong, was an extremely powerful typhoon that brought widespread damage to Guam, the Philippines and South China in mid-September 2018. Mangkhut made landfall in the Philippine province of Cagayan late on September 14th, as a Category 5-equivalent super typhoon; it was the third-strongest typhoon worldwide in 2018. With sustained wind speeds of more than 205 km/h and gusts of 255 km/h, the typhoon was the strongest storm to hit the Philippines since Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Yolanda, in 2013.

Two years before Typhoon Mangknut, Typhoon Haima, known locally as Lawin, made landfall in Cagayan in October 2016 as a Category 5-equivalent storm. The super typhoon had a diameter of 800km and caused devastating damages in the area.

We identified schools within the Cagayan province which sustained destructive impacts from both typhoons and have yet to receive help.


Our Work

We’ll be working to rebuild a primary school that accommodates over 170 students, aged 6 – 12 years old. This will include rebuilding seven classrooms, the office and the computer room, as well as refurbishing the four standing classrooms and toilet blocks. We have a highly experienced team of construction and engineering specialists who will ensure the school is built to the highest standards.

All Hands and Hearts arrives early and stays until the job is done. The time to get involved is now.
