New Rainy Season Creates Thousands more Homeless

In the first rainy season month of 2018, five tropical storms have already battered the Philippines, causing flood, mudslides and thousand of homeless familes.  Asia America Initiative is one of the few remaining international organizations assisting displaced families and stricken communities in the Western Visayas area.

Thanks to GlobalGiving donors we have been fortunate to continue to assist communties that have been still recovering from the 2013  Super Typhoon Haiyan.  Asia America Initiative with our local partners are conducting long-term emergency relief and providing food and water to thousands of affected families. We also are providing shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines and other post-trauma services to a target of 30,000 persons, mostly children and the elderly.  Our main conduit of care and relief are inside the public schools, as non-political community centers. 

"If you want to eliminate hunger, everybody has to be involved,"  says Principal Rowena of Catig-Lacadon Elementary School in Duenas. Catig-Lacadon Elementary was the site of the first AAI feeding program for the school year 2018-2019. "Thanks a bunch to Asia America Intiative for inspiring the parents and local government officials of our school children to assure that no matter how destructive the storm, our children are able to be properly nourished and have basic shelter and hygiene,"  Principal Rowena continues.  "We have recovered with consistent help from AAI and our Global Giving friends."

From the bottom of our hearts we are grateful to GlobalGiving,  and all of our donors.  We are committed to expanding this program throughout the new 2018-19 school year.  Our next step is the World Refugee Day Campaign which includes a 100 percent match of every donation, no matter the size. The campaign is only this Wednesday, June 20, 2018.  For one day only.   Please consider to contribute to AAI's program at this link:
