Four typhoons hit Luzon, in the Philippines in 33 days, with a death toll of more then 1100; thousands of hectares of land flooded and rendered unusable for agriculture for the next two months at the best. Thousands of houses were washed away and up to half a million people affected with hundreds of thousands of people needing to be relocated to safer places. Currently more than a hundred thousand are still in evacuation centres in the affected areas.

Ever since the first typhoon on September 26 AMURT & AMURTEL Relief Teams has been working round the clock to extend help and comfort the affected people.
