Central Visayas Earthquake Emergency Response
World Vision Canada | Country: Philippines | Amount: $45000 | Funded in 2013-14
430 families (approximately 2,150 people) will be provided with tents and household kits (sleeping mats, blankets, mosquito nets and bath towel), which is one of highest priorities of the affected families, in the town of Antequera, Bohol province where more than 70% of the houses were completely destroyed. Families are living in cramped, hastily built makeshift structures that do not proect them from the weather. The loss of their homes, severe damage to houses and the fear of landslides/earthquakes in their places of origin led people to stay in open areas using thin used tarps and other recoverable materials. This project will reduce the vulnerability of the beneficiary families and facilitate their transition to recovery.
