Project Report | Nov 30, 2020
AAI Assisting Villages Affected by Typhoon Goni

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 also provide shelter materials, hygiene supplies, medicines, and ongoing post-trauma services.

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 in 2020 have furthered the damage. We continue to care for displaced and severely affected communities. Our assistance goal for 2020 is 30,000 people, primarily children, and elders.

Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, December 1. If you would like to continue to support this program, your contribution will receive a match from GlobalGiving if made before midnight. Click the link below:
