Your donation will support initiatives to help partner people's organizations, institutions and communities increase capacities on resiliency and safety such as knowledge generation and sharing and conduct of activities that support advocacy on climate change adaptation, mitigation and environmental protection and mobilizing resources for distribution of emergency relief goods for the recovery of victims of calamities in the Philippines (e.g. providing psychological trauma interventions).
The impacts of climate change is here and now. The rise of sea water and extreme weather events have had tremendous social and economic implications to Filipino families who have lost their livelihood and homes and are currently in evacuation centers. De La Salle University's Disaster Management Response Program helps those affected by disasters in the Philippines, including Typhoon Haiyan.
The organization has four main programs, the community development, curriculum integration, institutional advocacy, and social awareness, formation and action.
While the project is currently engaged in the collection and deployment of relief goods, Sagip Pilipinas aims to eventually rebuild affected communities and enable them to adopt a more pro-active, integrated approach to disaster management.
