Challenge

Despite massive evacuation efforts, families in small, isolated communities had no place to take shelter before the super typhoon hit. Many lives were lost, and survivors lost homes and livelihoods. Your donation will help World Concern and our partners reach displaced families with emergency aid.

Solution

We will provide technical expertise to partners on the ground, assessing the needs of people affected, and determining the quickest, most efficient way to deliver emergency supplies, food, clean water, and care to survivors. We'll also provide emotional and psychosocial support to traumatized children who are shocked and grieving after this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

World Concern excels at long-term recovery after the relief phase has ended. We'll help families get back on their feet and rebuild their lives. Communities will be organized and learn to protect themselves from future disasters.
