You can be part of our commitment to help create safer, resilient, and developed communities in the Philippines. Your donations will be used to fund projects that target at-risk communities, and vulnerable groups such as children, women, persons with disabilities, and older persons. Some of them are listed below.



We distribute emergency go bags made of recycled tetra packs, which are sourced from a partner people's organization, filled with everything they will ever need in case of emergency situations such as flashlight, first aid kit, whistle, radio, powerbank, ready-to-eat food, bottled water, raincoat, etc.

To further cultivate a culture safety among the younger generation, we also fund basic first aid training and basic life support to youth groups and barangay rescue volunteers.


We will be able to reach more barangays and communities and give free trainings on household preparedness for multiple hazards. From fire to earthquake, typhoon, landslide, tsunami, and storm surge, our experts from the Training and Capacity Development Program can teach families, especially those who have members who are persons with disability, in participatory risk assessment, and family preparedness planning to lessen the impacts of disasters to their lives, livelihood, and properties.


Kariton ng Kahandaan is a mobile educational library where children and adults could read, appreciate, and learn about lessons in disaster preparedness and community-based disaster risk reduction and management. Filled with EIC materials we produced, and other learning materials in DRR from partners and other organizations, the Kariton ng Kahandaan could visit at-risk communities where games and fun activities could also be facilitated by our DRR trainers.
