Of the totally damaged, only 50 households of the affected have been provided with temporary shelter support.The BALA'I project will add 40 resilient core shelter units. While the core shelter units to be constructed has already been partially funded, they lack support for the construction of water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project, 40 families made homeless by Super Typhoon Haiyan will be able to regain a safe, healthy and dignified living. Their shelters will be equipped with basic hygiene facilities and be resilient to typhoon, flooding and earthquake. The intended sanitary facilities will prevent ground water contamination and reduce the occurrence of waterborne diseases.
