Typhoon Haiyan Relief- Holistic Recovery
Addressing the complex and multi-‐faceted needs of communities recovering from disaster, JDC is helping to develop a holistic recovery program for village communities on Panay and Bohol Islands and other areas in cooperation with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) and the Philippines-‐based Center for Disaster Preparedness. Programs will focus on recovery and rehabilitation and community-‐managed disaster risk reduction specifically in the areas of livelihood resilience, disaster preparedness, and psycho-‐ social support.
Community leaders, local health workers, and educators will receive necessary training in community organization surrounding disaster preparedness, administration of psychological first aid, and resiliency-‐building. On the livelihood front, fishery and agriculture workers will receive critical tools and industry-‐strengthening skills to rebuild their sources of income in a sustainable way. These program involve close cooperation with community organizations and village leadership with the goal of comprehensively improving the resilience of thousands of people living in these disaster-‐prone areas.
