This project will support Global Peace Foundation Philippines' emergency response efforts for hundreds of families affected by Super Typhoon Mangkhut in Sanchez Mira, Cagayan Province in the Philippines. Each family will receive emergency supplies (food and medicine), water purifier, and solar lantern to assist them as they recover and rebuild.
Tens of thousands of families were displaced when Super Typhoon Mangkhut made a landfall in Cagayan Province in the Philippines on September 15-16, 2018. In the province alone, there are 36,000 families in evacuation centers. The strong winds at 300 kilometers per hour have destroyed houses and toppled over infrastructures, electric posts, and communication lines. Our aim is to provide relief assistance to 150 families in Cagayan Province whose lives were severely affected by the typhoon.
Global Peace Foundation Philippines provides relief assistance and long-term impact projects to assist survivors in their efforts to recover and rebuild lives from disaster. This project will provide food, medicines, solar lanterns and water purifiers to 150 families in Sanchez Mira in Cagayan Province who are among millions left without electricity and access to clean water when Super Typhoon Mangkhut hit the Philippines.
With your support and the support of our public-private partners and volunteers, this project will help nearly 1000 Filipinos to fully recover from the devastating effects of Mangkhut, a category 5 typhoon, in their community by addressing their urgent needs to be healthy and alive. Beyond disaster recovery, we also empower communities on an on-going basis to support their own efforts to flourish and to be sustainable.
