Typhoon Mangkhut Food and Sanitation Project

Summary

This project will provide immediate food and hygiene kits to hardest hit poor families devastated by Typhoon Mangkhut. The typhoon is comparable in strength and destructive capability to Typhoon Haiyan and the landfall has brought extensive damage to crops and sanitation facilities as well as houses and infrastructure facilities. There is a need to provide basic food and sanitation to thousands of those affected.

Challenge

Typhoon Mangkhut is a super-typhoon comparable in strength and ferociousness to Typhoon Haiyan but it has not been given much coverage internationally because the news is about Hurricane Florence. Few hours ago the super-typhoon made a landfall wrecking so much destruction. The worst is that this time of year is harvest season for rice and corn and the affected area is considered bread basket in Luzon, providing food to millions.

Solution

We will provide food and hygiene kits to very poor families located in hard-to-reach villages as immediate support. Then for the long-term, we will provide new and or repair damaged latrines and in so doing ensure that the problem of safe sanitation is being responded to. Most often, sanitation facilities is not given importance with aid agencies focusing more on large-scale projects like infrastructure, among others.

Long-Term Impact

Safety and security of badly affected families with the construction or repair of their sanitation facilities. Without proper sanitation facilities, a second wave of disaster in terms of disease outbreak might happen.
