Challenge

The successive earthquakes that occurred in several municipalities in the Southern Philippines has resulted to damage in several municipalities. Most often the needs of women and their children are overlooked as aid agencies and governments scramble to repair infrastructure and provide large-scale aid. We will focus our support with them by providing essential supplies for hygiene, water and sanitation.

Solution

Women and children are most often overlooked in the provision of life-giving support during disasters and we will focus on them, seeking them out in hard-to-reach remote communities where aid agencies most often no longer cover with their own support. In this way their needs are taken cared of as they try to rebuild their lives and livelihoods.

Long-Term Impact

Taking care of the welfare of women and children is most often overlooked but very important for the well-being of themselves as well as for the local communities. The ultimate goal will be to forge climate resilience among vulnerable people as disaster strikes.
