Summary

The Philippines leads the world in natural disasters. Between September and November 2020, a series of typhoons delivered destruction, displacing thousands of families across the island nation. Asia America Initiative and local partners are conducting emergency and long-term relief including food and water to thousands of affected families. We apply lessons learned from two decades of relief programs. We provide shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines, and ongoing post-trauma services.

Challenge

In November 2020, Super Typhoon Goni delivered destruction across the Philippines. The floods, wind damage, and mud- and rock-slides have displaced more than 400,000 people. In areas of Visayas and Mindanao, many houses and schools were destroyed. New storms and flooding are expected to further the damage. We continue to care for displaced and severely affected communities. Our assistance goal for 2021 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 goal in 2021 is to assist 30,000 adults and children. We will continue to distribute donated medical, clean water, hygiene, and education/school supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Our long-term goal is the self-sufficiency of storm survivors across the region. Our immediate goal is to assist 30,000 additional disaster victims. 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 organizations.
