Challenge

Negros Island is one of the areas in Central Philippines hit by super typhoon Rai/Oddette. The 200 dependent families of our Silk Production Project were not spared from this devastation. Since our training center facilities and silk production equipment also incurred a huge damage, we have limited means and resources to help them for their immediate recovery.

Solution

Within our means, we are fast-tracking the mobilization of resources for the immediate restoration of our damaged facilities and equipment. Otherwise, it would be difficult for us to continue providing jobs for the locals as weavers, machine operators, and field technicians. Meanwhile, we are seeking support, in any form, to help provide reconstruction materials for the houses and rearing houses of our farmers. It will be of great help for their fast and sustainable recovery.

Long-Term Impact

We produced the 90% domestic silk of the country before the typhoon. Our project is being replicated across the Philippines, but after the typhoon, it is impossible for us to implement our activities smoothly. With your support, we will stabilize the production, involve more farmers, and provide more jobs to the locals. Having a stable source of income will enable the locals to live a life with dignity, and be more prepared and resilient for future disasters.
