Summary

Non-stop storms have physically devastated Philippine cities and rural villages. A lack of nutrition and medicines/vaccinations has posed dangerous survival conditions for both children and homeless pet animals. Diseases like rabies, leptospirosis, and related forms of the medieval "plague" rival Ebola in Africa. Asia America Initiative has provided emergency food and medical care to more than 100,000 people in the flood zones. We are expanding our life saving missions to include 500 dogs.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Philippines is among the nations most affected by climate change and related flood calamities. Massive storms such as Typhoon Haiyan and nonstop rainfall creates low level flooding and numerous viral and infectious disease epidemics, often spread by animals. Conditions of hunger, exposure to the elements in physically devastated cities and rural villages, and a lack of nutrition and medicines/vaccinations has caused dangerous survival conditions for children and thousands of homeless dogs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Asia America Initiative has provided emergency food and medical care to more than 100,000 people in the flood zones. We are expanding our life saving missions to include hundreds of abandoned dogs living in the ruins of the flood zones; many of whom are sick, injured and severely malnourished who carry diseases passed on to malnourished and barefoot children in the low lying water and mud. We will provide vaccinations, medicines and food to save the lives of humans and dogs.

Potential Long Term Impact

Diseases spread by animals in flooded areas require medical and nutritional intervention, and appropriate housing and shelter for thousands of homeless dogs. Killing of dogs is caused by hunger in families with small children as an emergency food source or due to fear of contagious killer diseases such as rabies and leptospirosis. We will assist schools to educate children on humane care, rescue and shelter of vulnerable dogs and puppies,and their value in trauma healing for small children. .
