YPDR Shelter 3D model


Just over a year after Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) tore through the Philippines, Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) has struck the region of Eastern Samar once again.

Official government reports confirm that 4.1 million people have been affected with 100,264 people remaining in evacuation centers, 18 dead, 916 injured, 42,466 homes destroyed and 248,204 homes partially damaged. USD 116 million in damages have been reported by government.
95% of the damage reported is in the province of Eastern Samar.

YPDR was one of the first on the ground and is already rebuilding homes in response to this shelter crisis. Please support our emergency response.
