Summary

Donations to this project will support our emergency response and ongoing recovery in the Philippines for Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). We will be supporting immediate relief needs as well as longer-term recovery, including shelter and livelihoods. Together with our trusted local partner, Citizens' Disaster Relief Center (CDRC), your contribution will enable us to help more people quickly, and prepare them to be ready for the next time disaster strikes.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Typhoon Haiyan was one of the most devastating earthquakes ever to make landfall. The effects of its rains, storm surge, and hurricane-force winds were compounded by poverty and vulnerable infrastructure. The typhoon shattered houses, economic areas, and farms. PWA is partnering to restore economic livelihoods in the fishing industry, farming industry, and to rebuild shelters, thus providing critically needed and durable recovery.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project site will enable PWA to provide needed recovery. PWA and its partner have identified the most-needed shelter and livelihood supplies - home repair kits, fishing supplies (nets, boat repair), farming seeds, tools, animals, and community-based disaster education. By providing these goods PWA will enable storm-affected residents to resume their previous way of life and return to self-sufficiency.

Potential Long Term Impact

When responding to disaster, PWA and CDRC not only distribute emergency items but also provide information and strategies about disaster preparedness. We do this so beneficiaries will be better prepared when the next disaster strikes. Raising awareness of the importance of disaster preparedness is a very important part of PWA's work. Our recovery program will help ensure this area does not fall victim to the next typhoon sure to come.
