Community Risk Reduction

In Manila over 500,000 people live dangerously close to rivers which burst their during the annual typhoon season. 

Since 2012 we’ve worked with an amazing People’s Organisation, called Buklod Tao, to protect thousands of vulnerable families from the worst impacts of disaster. 

For eight months our international volunteers were based in the community of Banaba, just outside Manila. Since withdrawing our volunteers we’ve continued to partner with Buklod Tao on many projects.

These projects include completing the construction of the Banaba Livelihood and Evacuation Centre, supporting Buklod Tao’s youth wing and supporting community-led emergency response when the worst happens.

Please consider donating today to help Filipino families prepare for disasters.
