Calamity/Disaster Response Program
Calamity and Disaster Response
The third program of ANCOP is Calamity and Disaster Response. The program focuses on the victims of the catastrophes and the immediate aid we can provide for them.
Members of the community and other parts of the world shares their efforts to uplift those who were devastated by the calamities. This is done through different interventions:
The building of structures is classified as transition houses and permanent houses. The transition houses is our abrupt help where temporary shelter are given to the families. On the other hand, permanent houses are typhoon resilient shelters provided for the families to have a safer place to live in.
Permanent houses are present in Bogo, Cebu; Ormoc City, Leyte; Tacloban, Leyte; Palo, Leyte and Basey, Samar. Also, thirty transition houses were given to the families of Guiuan, Eastern Samar and fifty transition houses for the families in Cebu.
We also initiates medical missions to check the health of our kababayans and provide kits for them. There are also medical projects partnered with different organizations.
Cash Assistance are also given to the people in order for them to avail other necessities needed in their everyday living.
We also do relief operations where people and volunteers work hand-in-hand in giving the basic needs of every individual including clothes, mats and blankets, foods and drinkable water, hygienic supplies and medicines.
Through the program, we are able to illustrate the bayanihan characteristic of Filipinos who never forgets to join the toil in rebuilding lives of those in need.
