Since 2011, donors like you have continued to support communities as they recover and prepare for torrential floods that plague the region through the GlobalGiving Philippine Flood Relief Fund. Our partners are making sure students are back in school, clinics are rebuilt, and communities are stronger than before in the face of future storms. Two of partners in particular, De La Salle University and International Disaster Volunteers(IDV), continue to provide relief, support, and training for those affected by these recurring disasters.

The Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone areas in the world, with nearly two dozen tropical storms and typhoons hitting their shores every year. With this in mind, De La Salle University has been working with local communities to review their Disaster Risk Reduction and Management plans, which they’ve worked to make user-friendly for more effective response to future disasters.

International Disaster Volunteers has made huge strides in their work towards constructing a Livelihood and Evacuation Center just outside Manila. IDV Chief Executive, Andy Chagger, details the success they’ve had. He says, “We’re delighted to report that the final side of the building has now also been rendered as well. This rendering is important to protect the building’s walls from the torrential downpours which batter the building during the annual rainy season. And completion of this work marks yet another milestone which has only been possible to reach thanks to you!”

Your donations have gone to improving the floor for their boat workshop. “We recently also laid a smooth “screed-coat” of concrete throughout the entire building. And, we used your generous donations to this project to include the boat workshop in the process. As a result the boat production process is now much safer, and also more efficient as the workshop is now much easier to clean.”

GlobalGiving and our partners cannot thank you enough for your donations. Your support has had a direct impact on the lives of so many people in the Philippines. Thank you so much for your continued support of the GlobalGiving Philippine Flood Relief Fund!

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
