An Emergency Generator for San Agustin Daycare

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

The San Agustin Daycare Center is located roughly 40 minutes drive from Tacloban. It usually functions as a Daycare but during typhoons it's also used as an emergency evacuation center by the kids families. The center provides a safe place during storms, but when the power goes down during typhoons the community is left in the dark for days. Being without power means not only being without light, but also without the ability to charge mobile phones and contact loved ones.

Challenge

Typhoons are always a scary thing to have to endure, particularly for children. People are forced from their homes into evacuation centers and cut off from the outside world. The fear is made worse for everyone by being out of touch with loved ones and having to endure nights in the darkness. If community members are injured it can also be difficult to administer even basic first aid without light.

Solution

This project will provide San Agustin Daycare with an emergency generator that will power the building during and after typhoons. This will provide light and the ability for evacuees to charge their phones to communicate with loved ones. This will make the practicalities of evacuation much easier. It will also provide comfort in difficult times, particularly for families with young children.

Long-Term Impact

Making sure the San Agustin Daycare is well equipped as an evacuation center will make the community more resilient and better able to survive disasters in the long term.
