Challenge

The communist insurgency in the Philippines is one of the longest-running in the world. Sporadic violence happen every now and then in remote barrios with the New People's Army doing extortion activities among civilians and then civilians fearing for their lives fleeing to safer places. Without support, they suffer hunger, malnutrition and disease. Coupled with this situation is the severe dry season affecting the countryside resulting to hunger.

Solution

We will provide urgent medical, food and livelihood support for internally displaced civilians affected by violence in remote barrios.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the lives of vulnerable internally displaced civilians fleeing violence in the countryside.
