The recent landfall of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines has affected nearly 12 million people, displacing more than 900,000. The infrastructure crucial to recovery efforts, including telecommunications, transportation, energy, and medical networks, has been compromised, affecting the ability of first responders to coordinate and engage.
With Architecture for Humanity's experience helping communities beyond the relief phase of disaster, we are currently mobilizing to assist in long-term reconstruction. Through speaking with local stakeholders and construction professionals, we are working to begin understanding the on-the-ground situation to prioritize rebuilding needs and help affected regions build back better and stronger.
"We are currently in touch with local architects and partners within our network, who are helping us to identify the most critical rebuilding needs - both in the short and long term. As we identify these needs, we will work with communities to build back better. Early support will allow us to begin working with communities immediately and empower local architects to drive recovery locally," said Eric Cesal, director of AFH's Reconstruction & Resiliency Studio.
We need your support, and your donation will help support the typhoon-affected region and aid Architecture for Humanity programs throughout the world.
