Serving the local population since 1984
Following Typhoon Haiyan, ADRA Philippines increased interventions to meet the demand for assistance. For more than a year, we were in rapid response phase, providing basic needs such as water, food, and shelter. In February 2014, we transitioned into recovery phase, with a focus on shelter, livelihoods, and disaster risk reductions (DRR).Como colaborar
Capacity Statement OverviewIn the wake of disaster, ADRA Philippines initiated the Support to Self-Recovery for Shelter (SSRS) program, which is currently assisting 5,950 households. Many families are living in shelters unsuitable for humans, and are often susceptible to sickness, crime, and further destruction of their home, food supply, and livelihood. Through SSRS, ADRA Philippines is providing the equipment necessary to rebuild, including galvanized iron sheets, lumber, rope, nails, saws, and hammers, among other valuable supplies. The project was completed in Kalibo, where 550 homes have been rebuilt, and five additional communities are well under way.

Country OverviewIn November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan destroyed the homes, incomes, and lives of millions. Since then, the Philippines has steadily been rebuilding. Currently, the island nation is one of the most promising developing countries, but poverty continues to affect the steadily growing population, which is predicted to double in just three decades.
