Providing Flood Relief for Families in Philippines

Assisting Philippine Flood-Plagued Communities

As of October 15, 2012 the typhoon floods of August 2012 in Manila, Philippines and surrounding communities continued to be a source of misery and suffering for thousands of families.  With assistance from GlobalGiving's disaster relief fund for the Philippines, Asia America Initiative has continued to partner with emergency relief teams from the Philippine military and collegial NGOs to provide protective clothing, medicines and blankets for epidemic prevention.

Communities sustained by AAI and our donor partners include Quezon City, Taquig, Marakina and Laguna.  Water from overflowing dams and river beds in many areas remains ankle deep.  This enhances the possibilities for epidemics of waterborne tropical diseases such as dengue fever and leptospirtosis [mideivil plague caused by rats breeding in garbage and stagnant water].  AAI continues to care for children who are  "out of sight, out of mind" due to lack of media coverage.  Current efforts include feeding programs of rice porridge, donations of vitamins, efforts to acquire clean water filtering systems and fever reducing medicines.  We are seeking assistance though many modest donations to continua our flood relief programs into the Christmas Season.  We thank Global Giving and all of our generous donors for their kindness and care.
