Challenge

Super Typhoon Rai (local name: Odette) slammed into communities in Mindanao wrecking much havoc and destruction. The poor especially farmers and artisans are badly affected and recovery will be slow. The effect of the super typhoon is so widespread that local governments are unable to cope, thus our role as service providers. We are local and can easily mobilize volunteers and logistics in an economical manner. We will be concentrating our efforts in remote villages in Surigao.

Solution

We will start by providing target beneficiaries with food packs, blankets, mosquito nets and home essentials. Then later on, when families begin to re-establish their communities, we will implement recovery initiatives via vegetable gardening, the raising of small animals and the construction and repair of water and sanitation facilities. In this way, we are able to provide short and long-term support to those who are badly affected.

Long-Term Impact

Disaster is becoming common as changes in climate is real. The need to provide support to local communities so that they became resilient is crucial. There is a need for local communities to rise-up after every disaster and in so doing resiliency is improved. By the training and deployment of local volunteers we are able to pass-on our expertise to the communities we serve.
