December 12. Peace Boat Update in the Philippines

Providing Kitchen Starter Kits to 600 Affected Households on Biliran Island, Philippines. Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) devastated the Philippines when it made landfall in early November, taking over 5,700 lives as it ripped through the middle of the country.

Over 1,700 people are still missing as the Government of the Philippines, the United Nations and a range of NGOs provide relief for affected communities through the distribution of food, medical supplies and other emergency goods.

Despite these efforts, the scale of the damage is so vast that many areas are still not receiving adequate assistance, leaving thousands of survivors in need. READ THE FULL UPDATE

December 4 Update from Peace Boat
An update from Peace Boat Disaster Relief Volunteer Center, who is helping out in the Philippines, Dec 4th: "...we are partnering with PDRRN (People's Disaster Risk Reduction Network), a local partner with Church World Service Asia-Pacific. We will be helping to sort and distribute kitchen starter kits (pots, pans and kitchen utensils, etc.) to affected communities in Biliran Island, which is a small province connected to Leyte Island by a bridge. Biliran Island has received some aid from the government but has largely been neglected by INGOs and so there is a major need for assistance in the area, made up of 132 barangays (villages/towns) - there are currently 112,528 affected people living on the island with 5544 houses completely destroyed (16,552 partially destroyed).
