About the program:

We are helping communities severely damaged by Yolanda as they work toward complete recovery. We have also provided support for other areas hit by other disasters, such as the Bohol earthquake of 2013, as well as Typhoon Nina, which hit the Bicol region, and Typhoon Ferdie, which hit Northern Luzon in 2016. We have also formalized an engagement with the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation for various disaster response and rehabilitation initiatives.
