Relief for survivors like Maylen

 
$440 $60
Raised Remaining

Summary

Maylen and her husband made their living farming rice and coconuts before Haiyan struck. They weren't rich, but they got by. But now, everything is different. The typhoon destroyed Maylen's home, flooded her fields with salt water, washed away her crop and seeds, and destroyed her barbecue. She has no home and no livelihood to feed her kids. Until she can get her business started again, she needs donors like you to help her survive.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

More than a month after the disaster, survivors in and around Tacloban are still struggling. They are homeless, have difficulty finding safe drinking water, and are increasingly vulnerable to illness. Recovery will take years, and survivors need our support now to ensure they can stay healthy as reconstruction begins.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your donations will allow us to support survivors like Maylen by providing emergency relief items, help accessing healthcare, emergency shelter, and help restarting livelihoods.

Potential Long Term Impact

In helping survivors like Maylen, we'll work through our local partners. Working with our local partners to provide aid ensures that our work will be as efficient as possible as our partners will be able to help us understand where reconstruction aid is needed most. Partner work also allows us to empower survivors, ensuring that they're participants in recover rather than simple recipients. This participatory approach lays the foundations of long-term recovery.

Help Families Recover from Typhoon Haiyan
Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. It tore through the Philippines in November 2013, killing over 6,000 people and affecting 14 million in total. We're working with survivors to help communities rebuild and to take charge of their own recovery. But so much remains to be done, and that's why we need donors like you! project reportread updates from the field
