Challenge

The Philippines, one of the most disaster prone areas in the world, sorely needs recovery assistance. Typhoon Mangkhut impacted the vulnerable populations when it struck, resulting in lost livelihoods and trapping the victims in the endless cycle of destruction and rebuilding. After immediate relief, the task becomes recovery of farming livelihoods and construction of disaster resistant buildings. The burden of recovery is extremely heavy to survivors who have limited resources.

Solution

Peace Winds and CDRC are providing agricultural seeds/plants, equipment, and livestock enabling the farm communities to rebuild. Training of local communities to construct disaster resistant sheds and warehouses is key to withstanding future disasters. CDRC and Peace Winds are targeting agricultural recovery and livelihoods so communities will be self sufficient. Increased skills in constructing disaster resistant warehouses prepares the communities for future disasters.

Long-Term Impact

Through this recovery program, the farm communities can regain their livelihoods and dignity. Through construction of disaster resistant buildings, the cycle of destruction and recurrent loss will be reduced. Communities can focus on livelihoods. Communities will have the tools they need to withstand disaster and become self-sustaining.
