Para Ti Global Holds Feeding and School Event in Response to Super Typhoon Karding (Typhoon Noru)
On November 6th, 2022, Para Ti Global held a feeding/school event for approximately 150 children in San Miguel, Bulacan to aid in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Karding (also known as Typhoon Noru). This event was held under the Provide and Protect Pillars of Para Ti Global. In addition to easing the financial burden of providing for food in the aftermath of this natural disaster, Para Ti Global volunteers distributed used clothing, notebooks, pencils, pens and rulers.
Karding/Noru made multiple landfalls over the Philippine archipelago both as a super typhoon (based on the classification used by the PAGASA) and as a high-end typhoon. The Department of Education estimated damages to schools of up to ₱112 million (US$2.27 million). As of September 30, 2022, reports of the storm's damages by the NDRRMC value infrastructural damages at ₱304 million (US$6.18 million). Over 50,025 houses were partially destroyed and 6,891 totally destroyed. The NDRRMC reported agricultural damages up to ₱3.05 billion (US$62 million), affecting 166,630 hectares (411,800 acres) hectares of land and losing worth 159,867.35 metric tons (157,342.49 long tons; 176,223.59 short tons) of produce.
