Summary

Since January 2020, thousands of families in the Philippines have been displaced by Taal Volcano, typhoons, fires, floods, and Covid-19 infections. Asia America Initiative and our partners are providing emergency food, water, tarp shelters, blankets, hygiene, face masks, and basic health care items for 2,000 displaced families and first-responders. We have provided 4 tons of relief supplies. Your donation will assist us in affected communities to inspire hope for the homeless.

Challenge

In January 2020, the Taal Volcano erupted near Manila, Philippines, affecting over 502,500 people. The Philippine government estimates 73,000 school-age children were displaced and nearly 80 schools abandoned. 146,992 persons are in a temporary shelter in 489 evacuation centers. Fresh food, clean water, and shelter materials are in short supply. Many roads are impassable. Worse, this area is heavily affected by the COVID-19 virus with little to no hygiene and medical supplies.

Solution

Asia America Initiative is working with local leaders, community organizations, police, and firefighters to deliver urgently needed goods and services to at least 500 families who cannot return to their homes. We have already delivered four tons of food, blankets, and hygiene supplies. We are also sending support for an additional 2,000 families (or 10,000 adults and children) who are homeless in especially hard-to-reach areas in Visayas and Mindanao regions.

Long-Term Impact

Asia America Initiative and partners are helping to provide humanitarian relief to 2,000 displaced families. We will provide face masks and sterile gloves to more than 300 firefighters and professional health workers. Relief supplies from the US, including food and hygiene items, will be sent to the Philippines to be distributed to refugee camps and health centers. Your donation will help us to acquire emergency supplies to send to affected communities and instill hope.
