Summary

In September, 2018, typhoon Mangkhut delivered destruction in the Philippines, killing an estimated 60 persons and more than 105,000 homeless. The main areas hit by the typhoon are the most productive farming lands in the Philippines, are now under water. This will drive up the prices of rice and corn which have more than doubled in 2018-19. We are conducting emergency relief services, providing food and water to thousands of families.

Challenge

In September 2018, major typhoon Mangkhut delivered destruction to the northern Philippines, killing an estimated 60 persons and rendering more than 105,000 homeless. The main areas affected are the most productive farming lands, flooded before entering the harvest season. These fertile areas now under water and cut off from the cities, will further drive up the prices of rice and corn. This will increase dire poverty, disease and hunger -- the root causes of armed conflict.

Solution

Asia America Initiative with our local partners are conducting emergency relief programs. In addition to professional services, we are providing food and water to thousands of affected families. We will also provide shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines and other post-trauma services to a target of 10,000 persons in rugged and flood-damaged rural areas. The majority of our beneficiaries are children and the elderly.

Long-Term Impact

Our long term impact is self-sufficiency of storm survivors across the region. Our immediate goal is to keep people alive, healthy and in a positive frame of mind to be enthusiastic about building a better future. The long term effect is in addressing the rebuilding of medical, educational and social systems of impacted communities. Our strength is in our cooperative partnerships with local, national and international humanitarian organizations and with local community leaders.
