Summary

The project will provide emergency food packs comprising rice, dried fish, noodles, mongo, powdered milk, sugar, salt and canned sardines to still unreached survivors living in remote and hard tp reach areas. This is a situation of urgent concern as some survivors have very little to eat for days subsisting on coconuts, grasses and leaves.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Two weeks after the devastation caused by Typhoon Hainan, there are still survivors living in hard to reach areas such as mountains or small islands and where roads are destroyed who have not received food aid and are subsisting on coconuts, grasses and leaves in order to survive. Some are eating the dead animals they can found but the government issued health warning not to do this. International aid is concentrated in the center of towns and cities where logistics is easier.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will provide still unreached survivors with emergency food aid comprising rice, dried fish, noodles, salt, sugar, powdered milk, mongo and other legumes, canned sardines, among others. We will do this by utilizing "food caravans" comprising motorcycle, horses and water buffaloo carriers. In remote islands, we will use outriggers. We will identify the areas through local government units and local informants then organize the caravans.

Potential Long Term Impact

Immediate nutrition of the survivors means long-term health for them. Starvation especially of children is a difficult situation but this can be remedied by immediate and urgent supply of food aid.
