Mayon Volcano Disaster Response in Albay Province

by Water, Agroforestry, Nutrition and Development Foundation Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

Mount Mayon, the most active volcano in the Philippines. Since January, it has continued to erupt forcing nearly 60,000 people to evacuate. It is predicted that evacuees would remain in the evacuation centers and others with their relatives for months. We will provide vegetable gardening kits to 1,500 evacuees living with their relatives to make them food secure and productive. We will also provide latrines to evacuation centers deficient in sanitation facilities.

Challenge

Mount Mayon, the most active volcano in the Philippines, continued to erupt forcing nearly 60,000 people to evacuate. While the recent eruptions have been relatively weak, scientists warn that they could turn explosive at any time. It is predicted that the eruptions will last for several months and evacuees are forced to stay in evacuation centers or with their relatives. We will focus our assistance to evacuees staying with their relatives as help for them is difficult to come by

Solution

Providing vegetable seeds, organic fertilizer and small garden tools will make the evacuees living with their relatives productive and the vegetable they will raise will help contribute to the improvement of their nutrition and income. The latrines we will install in evacuation centers deficient in such facilities will improve sanitation among the evacuees.

Long-Term Impact

Food security and improvement of sanitation by evacuees affected by the eruption of Mayon Volcano.
