Summary

The estimated damage of typhoon Haiyan is 34 billion pesos. With this tremendous devastation, every recovery effort must be sustained to achieve greater impact to victims' lives. That is why CJFI will continue its long term recovery program to reach out more number of victims and gain wider scope of communities assisted. This initiative will cover the municipalities including Tacloban City with coastal barangays facing Leyte Gulf with thousands of fishing families who were badly affected.

Challenge

The main issue this project will address is there are still many typhoon Haiyan victims who need help in terms of long term assistance. Local government units (LGUs) have ran out of resources because they were caught surprised and unprepared. Local donations will come to a point to stop because availability of funds are not forever. This initiative will reach out more number of victims and more number of communities affected by typhoon Haiyan through small but continued donations.

Solution

The current long term recovery program initiated by CJFI has only impacted the families, children, and communities that it has prioritized based on the resources available. This initiative will reach out the 21 coastal communities facing the Gulf of Leyte consisting of close to 1,000 fishing families. These areas were in the center of typhoon Haiyan's powerful storm surge and super wind velocity when Haiyan hit Tacloban City on Nov 8, 2013.

Long-Term Impact

The sector that will be greatly impacted by this project are children and their families whose sources of living are fishing. It will improve the lives of about 2,000 young children coming from the fishing families living in 21 coastal barangays facing the Gulf of Leyte. It will also improve the lives of families in the communities who are dependent on fish vending as fishing boats will be distributed to affected fishing families to regain back their lost livelihood.
