Summary

Donations to this project will support our emergency response 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. Responders are struggling to reach the thousands of displaced survivors who urgently need food, water, medicine, shelter, and hygiene supplies. Because of the many islands in the Philippines, reaching all the towns, villages, and barangays affected poses an enormous challenge.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project site will enable PWA to respond quickly to help affected communities and populations affected by this latest disaster, Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. Your support will allow PWA, through its partners, to provide dried/canned food, water, water purification, shelter, bedding, and hygiene kits to displaced residents. As relief moves into recovery, assistance will help victims regain their livelihoods and obtain long-term housing.

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.
