New Partnership with the U.S.-Philippines Society

Peace Winds America (PWA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the U.S.-Philippines Society that enables us to expand our recovery and livelihood rehabilitation activities on Busuanga Island.

In partnership with the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) and the Southern Tagalog People’s Resource Center, PWA will bring needed recovery to three more barangays on Busuanga: San Isidro, Maglalambay, and Panlaitan. This brings our total to six barangays receiving disaster preparedness and response education, fishing boat repair equipment, fishing gear, shelter repair kits, rice and vegetable seeds, farm tools, and more.

PWA is pleased to continue our recovery work in the Philippines. Even as the next typhoon season arrives, the needs remaining from Typhoon Haiyan are still considerable. Far from the center of operations in the eastern Visayas, residents of Busuanga were equally hard-hit, yet too often overlooked in relief and then recovery. Thanks to our partners at the U.S.-Philippines Society, CDRC, and STPRC we are helping address that situation.
