We will provide food packs, hygiene kits, house and latrine repair kits and vegetable seeds for 2,000 very poor families in remote communities affected by Typhoon Ursula (Phanfone) in order to lower morbidity and mortality and improve the level of living of vulnerable affected families.
Typhoon Ursula wrecked havoc and destruction to large parts of Central Visayas and our project areas in Ormoc City and Albuera is badly affected. Poor and vulnerable families have a difficult time recovering especially those residing in remote villages. With so many disasters happening, the government has difficulty responding.
Our organization is embedded in the project site and we can respond quickly and most effectively. We will deliver food packs, hygiene kits, house repair materials and vegetable seeds for gardening activities. In so doing, we will be able to effect the recovery of affected families especially those in remote villages and the most vulnerable like women-led households.
Recovery on the short and long-term for local communities where traditional aid is difficult to reach means vibrant and food and shelter-secure families able to survive fairly quickly. While disaster is becoming a regular phenomenon, there is a need to provide assistance and to forge resiliency among local actors.
