This project will support Global Peace Foundation Philippines' emergency response efforts for hundreds of families affected in Sanchez Mira, Cagayan Province in the Philippines as the whole province is currently submerged in floodwater. Each family will receive emergency supplies (food and medicine), water purifier, and solar lantern to assist them as they recover and rebuild.
Cagayan province is in need of urgent attention after the province sank underwater due to Typhoon Ulysses and the opening of Magat Dam. Thousands of people are stranded on the roofs of their houses after the flood quickly rose. Some areas in Cagayan are reportedly submerged 15 meters deep.
Global Peace Foundation Philippines provides relief assistance and long-term impact projects to assist survivors in their efforts to recover and rebuild lives from disaster. This project will provide food, medicines, solar lanterns and water purifiers to 500 families in Sanchez Mira in Cagayan Province who are among millions left without electricity and access to clean water when Typhoon Ulysses hit the Philippines.
With your support and the support of our public-private partners and volunteers, this project will help nearly 1500 Filipinos to fully recover from the disaster in their community by addressing their urgent needs to be healthy and alive. Beyond disaster recovery, we also empower communities on an on-going basis to support their own efforts to flourish and to be sustainable.
