Summary

There are currently close to 9 million people in the Philippines devastated by the cataclysmic super typhoon Haiyan [also named Yolanda]. Asia America Initiative with our local and international partners are conducting emergency relief and providing food and water to thousands of families. We are purchasing supplies in bulk in local markets along with hygiene supplies, medicines and other life-saving services. Our initial goal is 5,000 families or 30,000 persons, mostly children

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In October and November the central region of the Philippines has been devastated by a massive earthquake followed by super typhoon Yolanda [Haiyan]. The quake, floods and mudslides have displaced nearly 9 million persons. Some 10,000 estimated dead. Further south, Zamboanga city and nearby villages were severely damaged by war, fire and floods. Many hospitals and schools are destroyed. From September until Christmas Season are the heaviest months of storms and floods and heavy rain continues.

How will this project solve this problem?

Asia America Initiative provides medical and food support to disaster survivors, especially in remote villages that are difficult to reach. We assist thousands of families, especially children, in desperate need. We extend a lifeline through partnerships with courageous volunteers and professionals. Our target population over a six month period is 30,000 men, women and children. We also will distribute large quantities of donated medical, hygiene and education/school supplies.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our immediate goal is to assist at least 30,000 earthquake and typhoon victims during the weeks following the typhoon and the Holidays. The immediate impact is to keep people alive, healthy and in a positive frame of mind in the aftermath of the earthquake and devastating floods. The long term effect is to have a role in addressing the medical and social systems of impacted communities. Our strength is in our multiple partnerships with local, national and international organization
