Super Typhoon Rai (local name Odette) crossed the Philippines and made its first landfall on 16 December 2021 in the coastal city of Siargo with subsequent landings in eight other areas in the Mindanao and Visayas region of the Philippines. On 21 December 2021, the Philippine government declared a state of calamity for one year.


According to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Bohol, the storm devastated about ‘95 per cent’ of fish cages and ponds and other fishing facilities across the province.
In Sipalay, Negros, the tourism and fishing sector was severely affected and is estimated to have lost more than 350 million Philippine peso.
With this situation, added to the impact of COVID-19, many fishermen and farmers lost their livelihood.


Camillian Task Force Philippines has started to provide special assistance to identified families in Bohol and Sipalay through appropriate screening with a long-term intervention to help these communities build community resilience in times of disaster, in collaboration with local partners: Society of Ex-Camillian Seminarians Inc. in Bohol and Camillian Task Force Negros Unit in Negros Occidental.
The aim of the project is to provide relief assistance and an initial recovery response to the most affected areas of Bohol and Negros Occidental, located in inland and coastal areas.


The parishes of Our Lady of Fatima (Calape), St John of the Cross (Tubigon), Sto. Nino Parish (Ubay), St Francis Parish (Sipalay) will be the base areas. The number of families that will receive livelihood assistance in Bohol and Negros is over 111 beneficiaries. Rehabilitation and restoration of schools will also be provided to the areas of Brgy Inanuran, Tubigon, Bohol (an island barangay, 100% of the houses are totally damaged).
