Emergency Assistance to Storm-Affected Populations in Central Luzon: Final Results Report
The Emergency Assistance to Storm-Affected Populations in Central Luzon project was conceptualized based on the assessment made by Plan Philippines' 'Go Team' of basic humanitarian needs of families affected by Tropical Storm Maring, which hit the Philippines on August 18, 2013. The project sites were chosen based on the degree of damage sustained from non-stop torrential rain and waist-deep flooding in low lying areas in the provinces of Central Luzon. With support from USAID/OFDA, the two-month project address the emergency water, sanitation and hygiene needs among storm-affected populations from hard hit municipalities of Abucay, Dinalupihan, Hermosa, Orani, Orion and Samal. The project's components include the provision of hygiene kits and water purification supplies (hyposol) to approximately 10,000 displaced and affected individuals.
