Rotary International District 3780

Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)


Island of Leyte, Philippines

A call to service!!!
P Prepared by PDG Danilo Fausto Rotary Club of New Manila East Rotary International District 3780

Background
Nov 12, 2013 (Tuesday) 4 days after Yolanda, D3780 formed a task force composed of representatives from RC Loyola Heights, San Francisco del Monte and New Manila East. They met the following day to discuss what Rotarians can do to help in the devastation brought about by typhoon Yolanda. It was agreed in the said meeting that a Command Center be established at Ormoc City to serve as the nerve center of the activities of the District and all Rotarians of the world. All Rotarians and clubs are encouraged to use the center to serve as their clubs center of activities in case they wish to help and provide assistance to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. The center will be called Rotary Care Center of Rotary International. A container van donated by PP Ed Ayaneto of RC New Manila East, RI D3780, will be shipped to Ormoc designed to serve as D3780 Rotary Center office

Background
Why Ormoc City?

a) RC Ormoc City, a sister club of RC Loyola Heights and whose members are known to the task force, is willing to work jointly with us; b) We are in the opinion that at the initial stages, Tacloban will be chaotic and it will be safer and more effective to start at Ormoc.
A Needs Assessment Team was sent to Ormoc Thursday, Nov 14, to find out the conditions in the area such as: immediate need of intended beneficiaries, logistical requirements, security, organizational infrastructure, sleeping quarters, physical hygiene provisions for volunteers, area of operation, beneficiary selection, community cooperation, transportation possibilities, etc. Upon return of the needs assessment team, the task force met Saturday morning Nov 16 to hear the assessment report. Consequently, the task force decided to immediately send the first team to Ormoc.

Background
A coordination meeting was held Sunday night Nov 17 to schedule the volunteers to mobilize. First group to leave Thursday (Nov 21) for Ormoc, to immediately implement the assistance program. Thereafter, replacement volunteers were scheduled subsequently and were given assignments to leave for Ormoc at later dates for project sustainability. Task force met with DG Francis Rivera Monday Nov 18, during lunch with a visiting Rotarian, PP Tetsuzo Fukuda of RC Nagoya-Wago, Japan, to get last minute instructions and guidance regarding the relief and rehabilitation efforts to be initiated by RI D3780. The Rotary district of DG Tanaka through PP Tetsu expressed their strong intention to help and provide financial support to the project.

Next Steps Particulars for the Rotary Care Center


First Phase Soup Kitchen, we will continue feeding 1,500 hungry children and victims of the typhoon primarily from Barangays Linao and Naungan, Ormoc City for a minimum of 40 days. School classes resumed Dec 2, 2013 and evacuees returned to their homes. We will continue to feed the children in school since they have no food to eat in their own homes. Second Phase Rehabilitation of school buildings particularly fixing the roofs. Some buildings fixed by Rotarians are now being used by the school children. School supplies were also donated by Rotarians for the use of returning students. Third Phase Livelihood project, by providing fishing boats to fishermen affected by the typhoon. The areas we are helping are all coastal areas and depended on fishing as their main livelihood. 95% of fishing boats were lost rendering the victims with no means of livelihood. Fishing boats will be given as a venture capital managed and operated by responsible small fishermen cooperatives. Capability and management competency building will coincide with the project to ensure the projects success. Expansion- The Rotary Care Center expanded its operation to Tacloban City and other areas badly hit by the typhoon feeding another 1,250 persons per day.
