To help those in the Philippines devastated by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, IT&E Guam and IT&E CNMI are hosting a text-to-donate campaign from Nov. 18 to 26. All funds raised will support the organization name's relief efforts for the typhoon victims.
According to news reports, Super Typhoon Rolly (also known as Typhoon Goni) was the strongest typhoon of 2020 when it hit the Philippines on Oct. 31, affecting an estimated 1.6 million people. Just 11 days later, Typhoon Ulysses (also known as Typhoon Vamco) battered the same area, causing extreme flooding that destroyed homes and displaced hundreds of thousands.
