Challenge

Typhoon Hagupit is fiercer than Typhoon Haiyan that also ravaged the Visayas last year. In its bulletin on Thursday afternoon, 4 December 2014, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) categorized Hagupit's intensity as "violent" with maximum sustained winds of up to 305 kph and gusts of 370 kph. The main problems for thousands of survivors is lack of food, destroyed toilets and massive loss of livelihoods.

Solution

This project will immediately bring to the most devastated areas in Samar and Leyte much-needed food assistance, installation of new toilets and repair of damaged ones and support small-scale local livelihoods so that most severely-affected residents will continue on living, with dignity and with continuous food supply.Our approach with food security is to install home-gardens, so that the beneficiaries will have continuous food and income, in about 3 weeks.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impacts of thousands of survivors will be food security as the gardens starts to provide food in a few weeks, decrease the threat of epidemic with the installation of toilets and economic security with the revitalization of local livelihoods.
