Relief for survivors like Johnrick

A microproject by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Relief for survivors like Johnrick


Johnrick is a four year old boy who lives in Tacloban. Before the storm struck, he spent his days at day care and playing with his friends. But Typhoon Haiyan destroyed his home, wiped out his family's livelihood, and injured his mom. The family is eager to get back on their feet, and in time they will. But until reconstruction begins, Johnrick needs donors like you to help him survive.

More than a month after the disaster, survivors in and around Tacloban are still struggling. They are homeless, have difficulty finding safe drinking water, and are increasingly vulnerable to illness. Recovery will take years, and survivors need our support now to ensure they can stay healthy as reconstruction begins.


Your donations will allow us to support survivors like Johnrick by providing emergency relief items, help accessing healthcare, emergency shelter, and help restarting livelihoods.

Long-Term Impact

In helping survivors like Johnrick, we'll work through our local partners. Working with our local partners to provide aid ensures that our work will be as efficient as possible as our partners will be able to help us understand where reconstruction aid is needed most. Partner work also allows us to empower survivors, ensuring that they're participants in recover rather than simple recipients. This participatory approach lays the foundations of long-term recovery.
