Challenge

In Decemember 2017, Typhoon Vinta heavily damaged areas of the Philippines previously destroyed in 2013 by super typhoon Yolanda [Haiyan]. The floods, wind damage and mud- and rock-slides have displaced nearly 100,000 people. More than 200 have perished. Zamboanga and Sulu Province were heavily damaged by wind and floods. Many houses and schools were destroyed. We continue to assist displaced and severely affected communities. Our goal for 2018 is 30,000 people, primarily children and elders.

Solution

Asia America Initiative provides medical and food support to disaster survivors, especially in remote villages that are difficult to reach. We assist thousands of families, especially children, in desperate need. We extend a lifeline through partnerships with courageous volunteers and professionals. Our target population in 2018 is an additional 30,000, especially school children. We also will distribute large quantities of donated medical, hygiene and education/school supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Our long term goal is self-sufficiency of storm survivors across the region. Our immediate goal is to assist 30,000 additional disaster victims during 2018. The immediate impact is to keep people alive, healthy and in a positive frame of mind enthusiastic about building a better future. The long term effect is to have a role in addressing the medical and social systems of impacted communities. Our strength is in our multiple partnerships with local, national and international organization.
