Challenge

Leyte province in Central Philippines has been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, leaving coastal towns without food, water, and electricity. There is high need for basic items in the most devastated areas, especially those that have not yet been read by aid due to blocked roads. Civic Force will utilize its experience in responding to the Great East Japan Earthquake to help the most vulnerable in Leyte province.

Solution

Civic Force, together with other members of the Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management, have begun to raise funds to support our emergency response in Leyte province. We will work with our Philippine member Citizens' Disaster Response Center to deliver emergency relief goods to affected families as soon as possible. The relief packs will contain, food, hygiene products, sleeping kits, and medicine good for a 5-person household.

Long-Term Impact

A major disaster such as this require a huge amount of support to provide both immediate relief and long-term recovery. We will continue to support our local members' mid-to long-term reconstruction projects to help the survivors get back on their feet.
