Typhoon Ketsana has wreaked havoc in Laos. It is very remote, and is one of the least developed countries in the region. SEDA is providing families with supplies, shelter and support.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Southern Laos – October 2009: Typhoon Ketsana has hit four of Laos’ Southern Provinces, leaving at least 16 people dead and 135 people missing. The Social and Economic Developers Association, Laos (SEDA), is working with Lao Red Cross, concerns civil society organization to mobilize relief efforts to help the worst affected areas and the poorest people (Saravan, Attappeu, Sekong Provinces)

How will this project solve this problem?
