Help the Philippines Survive and Recover
Assessing the damage, reaching those affected, transporting supplies, and helping rebuild a country and its people so that they are better prepared when the next crisis comes are all part of the challenge Catholic Relief Services and the agencies we are working with are facing going forward in the Philippines.
Catholic Relief Services hopes to raise $20 million for this vital emergency response. With a strategized plan to address both immediate and long-term needs for the Filipino community, Catholic Relief Services estimates $5 million to cover the immediate assistance on the ground, and $15 million for the medium-term rebuilding and recovery needs-particularly with regard to shelter, water infrastructure, sanitation and livelihoods recovery. Catholic Relief Services will be seeking this critical support from individuals, dioceses, private and public donors, and will provide thorough, timely updates on the program activities.
