Short Description:

Overall goal

Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, was the most powerful storm ever recorded. It struck the Philippines on November 8th 2013, with winds near 315 kilometres /hour followed by a tremendous storm surge/ tsunami wave. In total 14 million people have been affected and more than 1 Million houses destroyed and/or damaged. The islands of Leyte and Samar were hit hardest.

The Philippines Red Cross (PRC) together with its Red Cross/ Red Crescent partners have drafted a “One-movement” response plan for supporting more than 150.000 people through provision of safe shelter, water and sanitation, improved livelihood, disaster risk reduction and capacity development of PRC. A consortium between the PRC/German Red Cross/AutRC will implement part of that movement plan in Dulag, Leyte province and support 10.000 people.

- The ADA funds will contribute to that consortium through provision of disaster resistant shelters for 100 families.

- Additionally, families, skilled workers and volunteers will have increased knowledge on disaster resistant building techniques.

The goal is that families rebuild their houses to a safer standard than before as requested by the Philippine government as well as the Philippines Red Cross and that these houses can withstand a minimum level of a category 3-4 typhoon in the future, thus minimizing future climate, environmental and disaster related risks.
