Challenge

The eruption of Taal volcano has displaced tens of thousands of local residents. The situation is very fluid and a major eruption is a cause for worry and concern. We think that the situation will be abnormal for several months and there is a need to focus our effort to assisting women who are very vulnerable to this type of calamity. We will seek out those who were already vulnerable even before the eruption happened and they are more vulnerable at present.

Solution

We will seek-out and provide direct assistance to very vulnerable women and girls through local Department of Social Welfare personnel and provide direct assistance on the ground. In this way their needs are prioritized and their well-being are ensured. Our assistance will be provided on an individual, direct basis by engaging local women volunteers who will implement the initiative together with us.

Long-Term Impact

Sometimes, with such a disaster as widespread and grave as this, the welfare of poor women and girls, made even more difficult, is not prioritized and they are left even more destitute. Providing for their well-being, means improved and stable communities able to recover from the situation.
