AAI assisting more than 5,000 people in Cateel.

Through August 2013, the Philippines remains one of the most flood ravaged counties in the world.  Relentless typhoons and other tropical storms continuously ravage the island nation.  More than 1 million people remain washed out of their homes, with many families living in makeshift shelters.  In response, with assistance from generous Global Giving donors, since June AAI and our partners from International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated [IPI] Foundation have turned less than $500 in cash donations into $20,000 of hygiene kits for more than 1,000 families or 5,000 men, women and children.

In mid-August 2013, AAI provided hygiene and other supplies for IPI Foundation to conduct relief missions into the rural mountainous area outside of Davao city, such as in Cateel. IPI provided trucks and humanitarian supplies,  One Wold Inistute provided wheelchairs, and privatecompanies provided sea transport from Manila to Davao. We are currently making an effort to raise an additional $2,500. to better assist an additional 5,000 persons, including a large number of grandparents, who often are the hearts and souls of their extended families.  We hope you can join us in this much-needed and urgent activity. 

For many families, AAI and IPI are the only hope.
