Description : People in the Philippines are rebuilding their homes and struggling to find sources of livelihood after Typhoon Hagupit hit parts of the country on 6th December 2014. According to the authorities, about 2.9 million people have been affected in nine regions. The authorities’ preparedness helped in reducing the impact of the typhoon. The ICRC, the PRC and other Movement partners are closely coordinating relief efforts.
ICRC assessment team noted limited to moderate damages over the entire province of Samar. Houses built with light materials were destroyed and some health facilities were partially damaged. Hospitals are fully functional. But public services (electricity, water and basic health care) have been disrupted. It will take a few weeks for cleaning to be completed and electricity to be fully restored. In addition, livelihood activities have been disrupted with the agricultural sector affected in some areas (destruction of coconut trees and newly planted rice seedlings).
A joint ICRC/PRC emergency response will support communities affected by Typhoon Hagupit in coastal areas of Northern and Eastern Samar. ICRC has already donated 13 dressing kits or emergency health kits to various health facilities. In addition, 125 tons of rice and 28.5 tons of canned sardines will be handed over to the PRC for distribution in coastal areas of Northern and Eastern Samar.
