This project work towards the rehabilitation efforts on food production, water supply and energy for lighting and battery charging in the affected areas of Typhoon Haiyan. Initially, this project will implement on 5 disaster areas in the Visayas with 150 households each community as partners and beneficiaries.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Dominique Burgeon of FAO said, "the urgency of time can't be overstated. It would be a double tragedy if next spring farming families still needed to rely on continued humanitarian food assistance because we haven't been able to support them as they recover from this disaster (typhoon Haiyan)." At this juncture, we open the door for technical volunteers and rehabilitation support to municipalities in the Philippine Visayas region devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.
How will this project solve this problem?
We will install appropriate systems for lighting & communication, potable water supply, and food production using renewable energy and sustainable agriculture.
Potential Long Term Impact
Our concerted efforts will help 150 households in each of the 5 affected areas, to establish the rehabilitation efforts on food production, water supply and energy which is an essential boost to start the rebuilding process of the communities which in the long term will build resilient communities to climate change and disaster risks.
