M Lhuillier Conducts Relief Operations To Aid Victims of Typhoon Odette

On the week leading up to December 17, 2021, Typhoon Odette was slated to enter the Philippine area of responsibility and pass through the Visayas and parts of Mindanao. Warnings were issued by different local governments and evacuations prior to the storm were conducted as precautionary measures which hoped to ensure everyone’s safety.

But what happened on the evening of the 17th was much more devastating than anyone could have prepared for. Odette became a category 5-equivalent super typhoon that hit 22 provinces and made landfall in several islands in the Visayas region. Among those that were badly hit were the Southern areas of Panay and Guimaras Island. Families lost their homes and belongings due to the heavy winds and flooding. Despite the government’s efforts to reach as many typhoon victims as possible, there were still areas that were unreachable with people who badly needed aid.

During times of adversity, M Lhuillier still stands by its goal to help every Filipino, especially those who need it most. M Lhuillier’s relief operations team immediately took action as they planned the relief operations and prepared goods to be distributed to those affected. On December 24 and 29, the team then brought the relief goods to selected coastal barangays from the municipalities of San Joaquin and Unisan Island in the province of Guimaras.

When the team distributed the relief goods, they received an overwhelming response from the victims. They expressed their gratitude for the help that M Lhuillier extended to them. There were over 250 households that benefited from the relief operations in San Joaquin and Unisan Island.

Another area that M Lhuillier extended help to was Olango island, situated off Mactan island in Cebu. The relief operations team assigned here distributed relief goods to 3 barangays in Olango, specifically: Sitio San Isidro Barangay Sabang, Sitio Aguho Barangay Sta. Rosa, and Barangay San Vicente.

There were 1,000 relief packs which included tents prepared by the team. These were given out to typhoon victims whose houses sustained extreme structural damage. A lot of houses lost their walls and roofs during the typhoon so the tents proved to be a tremendous help for those seeking temporary shelter.

The team was grateful to have the opportunity to uplift the spirits of those who were affected by this calamity. A month post-Odette, the provinces hit by the typhoon are slowly getting back on their feet. With the Filipino’s indomitable spirit and M Lhuillier’s willingness to extend aid during times of adversity, it won’t be long until the full recovery from this crisis.
