Summary

Roselyn and her family were lucky to survive the storm. When the storm hit it destroyed their home. They managed to survive by hiding under full bags of rice for hours. Everyone in the family survived the storm unhurt, but now they have no live hood, no home, and Roselyn and all her siblings are out of school With the help of donors like you, we'll help

Challenge

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.

Solution

Your donations will allow us to support survivors like Roselyn by providing emergency relief items, help accessing healthcare, help returning to school, and emergency shelter.

Long-Term Impact

In helping survivors like Roselyn, 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.
