96 Permanent Homes for Haiyan Survivors

by International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)
Vetted

Summary

Typhoon Haiyan was one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall. The Philippines is used to storms, but even their concrete shelters were destroyed by Haiyan's vicious winds and massive storm surge. Today, hundreds of thousands are homeless. We're committed to rebuilding permanent homes for Haiyan survivors in partnership with Filipino group Gawad Kalinga.

Challenge

Today, thousands of survivors remain in temporary shelter. Families can't restart their livelihoods in temporary shelters and, as these shelters are unsanitary, they're more susceptible to illness. Homelessness also complicates sending children back to school. Secure housing underpins recovery, but many families simply can't afford to rebuild.

Solution

GK only builds the main structure of a house, and the buildings still need additional work before they can be considered finished homes. That's where we come in. We'll turn the structures GK builds into finished homes by building an interior loft and installing stairs to almost double the available living space. We'll also be plastering and painting to ensure the houses feel like true homes.

Long-Term Impact

With a home, children can be re-enrolled in school, livelihoods can be restarted, and families can begin the long process of rebuilding the lives that Haiyan destroyed.
