In collaboration with local partners, we are supporting 300-500 families affected by Typhoon Kammuri and 300-500 families from Cotabato affected by the earthquake through our Garden Releaf assistance. Using permaculture we will provide vegetable food packs from local farms, water systems, herbal remedies, earthen stoves, pop up gardens, and simple waste management system. We aim to fundraise scholarships for a select group of displaced leaders for a training on Permaculture in Disasters.
Category 4 Typhoon Kammuri will be leaving damages across the Philippines. We are set to identify assistance to one of the hardest hit areas. Basic needs will be necessary for food, water, and health. There are currently 372 families displaced from Barangay Bato in Makilala, Cotabato after earthquakes since October. The villagers are not allowed to return home after their location has now been declared as a no build zone. Support for term displacement is needed.
The Regenerative Aid assistance will use practical permaculture design solutions to provide short term and long term food and water security, sanitation and health through waste management, and integrative health care and well-being. Because permaculture is designed with nature, it uses the most locally available materials and simplest technologies appropriate to the place lessening dependence for recurring aid needs.
Long term impact include: 1. Long term food security through community gardens and seeds saved 2. Skills learned in growing food and managing water and waste 3. Health and well-being from herbal remedies, integrative health care modalities and therapeutic effects from working with the earth. 4. Design knowledge and skills replicated to more IDPS through permaculture training
