Challenge

The first concern that needs to be addressed is the daily sustenance of the victims to survive from hunger, particularly the need for a daily supply of food. Next is the provision of a temporary but comfortable place to stay, and adequate clean clothes to wear and even hygiene kits that they may use every day.

Solution

This fund will support immediate recovery and relief efforts to more than three thousand displaced families in Davao City, Philippines. Funds will help provide victims' necessary immediate relief supplies such as water and ready-to-eat meals and distribution of food packs, Included in this basic support to the victims are medicines, and sleeping materials.

Long-Term Impact

While the evacuees are still in the evacuation centers relief foods will help them survive on a daily basis. Major disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide both immediate relief and recovery, so once recovery and immediate relief assistance work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts.
