Challenge

Tropical Storm Megi (local name: Agaton) devastated many villages in Leyte and there is a need to provide direct assistance to affected families. Of immediate needs are food and hygiene supplies and later on with small livelihood fund in order for families to survive. We have maintained a sub-station in Leyte equipped with volunteers and logistics and we will mobilize them in order to respond to the needs of local population.

Solution

Food and hygiene supplies will enable the survivors to survive while the storm subsides and after which we shall focus on their long-term recovery. The need during this time is great and there is already a seeming fatigue and hopelessness among helpers with regards to disaster with disaster occurring with much frequency. We are based locally and can thus respond quickly and efficiently.

Long-Term Impact

The well-being of families and entire communities needs to be taken cared of especially during natural disaster. Providing immediate relief followed by long-term support is very much needed to ensure that communities become resilient and able to withstand disasters.
