This project will support Global Peace Foundation Philippines' emergency response efforts for hundreds of families affected by Super Typhoon Odette in Siargao, Surigao Del Norte in the Philippines. Each family will receive emergency supplies (food and medicine), water purifier, and solar lantern to assist them as they recover and rebuild.
Typhoon Odette a Category 5 tropical storm has shattered Siargao Island with two reported deaths and the cost of property devastation already being estimated to reach billions. The world-famous island is now Ground Zero of super typhoon 'Odette': no power, no phone signals, limited supply of water, food, medicines and urgent need for shelter for thousands rendered homeless or roofless.
Global Peace Foundation Philippines provides relief assistance and long-term impact projects to assist survivors in their efforts to recover and rebuild lives from disaster. This project will provide food, medicines, solar lanterns and water purifiers to 150 families in Siargao Island who are among millions left without electricity and access to clean water when Super Typhoon Odette hit the Philippines.
With your support and the support of our public-private partners and volunteers, this project will help nearly 1000 Filipinos to fully recover from the devastating effects of Odette, a category 5 typhoon, in their community by addressing their urgent needs to be healthy and alive. Beyond disaster recovery, we also empower communities on an on-going basis to support their own efforts to flourish and to be sustainable.
