List: Government Agencies and NGOs Accepting Donations for Flood Victims

13 October 2022
List Government Agencies and NGOs Accepting Donations for Flood Victims

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), there are 20 tropical cyclones that wreak havoc in the Philippines every year, especially in areas of Southern Luzon, Central Luzon, and Bicol Region, making the country remarkably flood-prone owing ultimately to its geographical location.

 

The most recent typhoon, which transformed from a severe tropical storm to a supertyphoon category with maximum sustained winds of 195km/h, Karding sent Filipinos from the Ilocos region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Bicol, and the Cordillera region worrying for their lives and livelihoods when it hit the areas affected last September.

 

In addition to agricultural losses and properties destroyed, with 12 dead and 6 declared missing, perhaps the saddest news in the wake of super-typhoon Karding is the passing of five rescuers from Bulacan who had died while performing their heroic duty.

 

In these trying times, affected areas and families are sent to evacuation centers for temporary shelter where they could receive further help from donations.

 

If you're one of the people concerned about where to donate for flood victims, this article will disclose government agencies and other organizations that are legitimate and authorized to accept and dispense donations whether in cash or in kind, along with their verified bank accounts and other methods to send donations.

 

Who is allowed to donate?

Practically just about any individual, group, or organization can donate, including international organizations and Filipino migrant workers abroad. According to the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, international donations could be duty-free and tax-exempt, provided that the recipient organization, be it a non-profit, religious, welfare, and other charitable institution, is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and must be duly accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

 

Also eligible to receive foreign donations are government institutions including local government units (LGUs). However, the acceptance of such donations from international governments is still subject to prior approval from the President of the Philippines upon the express recommendation of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs.

 

NGOs that are not duly accredited by the aforementioned governing bodies, meanwhile, can still receive overseas donations but will be responsible for shouldering the expenses for customs duties and taxes, as stipulated by laws governing importation.

 

What goods and services can be donated?

Aside from monetary donations to bank accounts from recipient organizations and government agencies, the following are what could be donated to typhoon victims.

 

  • Food items such as canned goods and ready-to-eat meals;
  • Medicines (with an expiry date of at least 24 months) and other medical supplies;
  • Sanitary items and hygiene products such as alcohol, soap, shampoo, and other toiletries;
  • Bedding materials such as mats, blankets, trapal, or a family-size tent
  • Educational, scientific, and cultural books and materials for child education;
  • Essential equipment and machinery, including spare parts and other accessories;
  • Consumer goods not currently available in affected areas in times of calamities.

 

Meanwhile, donating used clothing is strictly prohibited due to potential health hazards.

 

LIST: Agencies and NGOs to donate to for typhoon victims

Government agencies together with non-government organizations (NGOs) are authorized to receive donations from just about anyone willing to send their help to typhoon victims.
