Relief and Rehabilitation Project for the Survivors of Typhoon Yolanda
In November 2013, typhoon "Yolanda" (International Codename: Haiyan), which is said to be one of the strongest typhoons in world history, entered the Philippine area of responsibility. More than 16 million individuals were affected, and the number of deaths reached 6,000. Cooperating with the Philippines-Japan NGO Partnership (PJP), theJapan-Philippines NGO Network (JPN), composed of 19 member organizations, called for donations and assistance for the relief operations for victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda. JPN supported the rehabilitation project of the Philippine Partnership for the Development of Human Resources in Rural Areas (PhilDHRRA), a member of PJP and its implementing organization, Western Samar Development Foundation (WESADEF) and provided food, water and other relief goods.

JPN is currently providing rehabilitation support for 52 households in Samar. The beneficiaries are provided with water buffalos (carabaos) for farming, so they can make a living in the short term and feed their families. We are also supporting the organization of the locals to help them become self-reliant.
