Hot Meals for Evacuees like Pina

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

Pina is 56. She lives with her husband and four children in a poorly constructed house near a riverbank. Every year there are floods, and Pina's house has been affected several times in her life. During floods Pina and her family have to spend days sleeping on the floor of an evacuation centre. With your help, we'll be there to provide hot meals and emergency supplies during those floods.

Challenge

The Philippines is affected by around 20 typhoons every year, making it one of the world's most disaster-prone countries. The floods those typhoons bring are devastating for the thousands of families who live on the riverbanks in the poor community of Banaba. Banaba is on the outskirts of Manila in a floodplain surrounded by rivers. It floods multiple times every year and these floods force thousands, Pina included, to evacuate.

Solution

Your donations will be used to provide hot meals, like rice porridge with chicken and vegetables, in evacuation centres during floods. Funds will also be used to provide other emergency supplies like drinking water and first aid. No one knows when the next flood is coming, so we're raising the money we need to provide hot meals for evacuees, including Pina, now.

Long-Term Impact

By providing nutritious, filling food during evacuation families won't have to use precious savings to pay for meals outside their home during floods. This will leave them with more funds available to recover when floods recede. It will also remind them that during disaster, there is someone there who cares.
