Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. The Philippines is used to storms, and many families in Haiyan's path took shelter as instructed. But even their concrete shelters were destroyed by Haiyan's vicious winds and massive storm surge. We're working with survivors to help communities rebuild, take charge of their recovery, become more food secure, and restart their livelihoods.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Yolanda, brought wide spread devastation across nine provinces in the Philippines. Survivors have seen their homes, livelihoods, and communities destroyed. As many as 4,000 died. Communities are working hard to pick up the pieces, but they need your support so that they can restart businesses, feed their families, rebuild key infrastructure and take charge of their futures.
How will this project solve this problem?
We'll work with local leaders to give communities the tools they need to meet their own needs. This means investing in sustainable solutions to food insecurity, repairing and rebuilding key buildings, investing in livelihoods, and much more.
Potential Long Term Impact
By working with local partners, we'll achieve concrete outcomes - such as helping survivors feed their families - while also empowering and mobilising communities. With communities and their leaders at the helm, our work will build survivors' capacities to help themselves.
