Challenge

On 22 December, Typhoon Vinta made landfall and crossed various provinces across Mindanao in the Philippines, causing severe flash floods and landslides. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council reported that more than 740,000 people were affected across 24 provinces, and over 310,000 people were displaced. Two months after the typhoon, the affected communities are still struggling to overcome its devastating effects, as they attempt to move towards recovery.

Solution

IsraAID's mental health professionals will build the capacity of local service providers supporting typhoon-affected communities. Our teams will also provide direct mental health support to the responders, to help them process their traumatic experiences and continue the response. IsraAID's water engineers will install water filter systems to enable access to safe water and run community education activities to promote hygiene practices post-disaster, to prevent the spread of waterborne disease

Long-Term Impact

As well as responding to the emergency post-typhoon needs, the program builds on existing response services and community-based mechanisms, and strengthens the capacity of local responders and service providers. Building the capacity of local, national and regional partners, will enable rapid and effective response in this natural disaster-afflicted area, in the event of future emergencies.
