This project will provide housing, food, medicine and livelihood support to 1,200 families who have left their homes and lived in the town centers or nearby cities being displaced by a confluence of natural and man-made disasters among them, the longest-running communist insurgency in the world instigated by the New People's Army, Muslim extremism and massive typhoons happening more frequently as well as long dry spells caused by El Nino weather events.
The island of Mindanao is teeming with internally displaced peoples or refugees in their own country. They left their homes and farms due to a host of factors foremost of which is the long running communist insurgency, violence by Muslim extremists and natural disasters such as typhoons. They are not protected by international law and lack humanitarian support.
This project will seek-out internally displaced refugees living in the town centers or urban areas or their relatives far away from their homes and farms with the assistance focusing on food, medicine, shelter, education for their children and livelihood assistance.
Improvement in the lives of internally displaced peoples will mean improved communities.
