The main deployment by Disaster Aid International in the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan is essentially over although support is still on-going in coordination with our local partners Balay Mindinaw.
During this deployment, some 1000 families were provided temporary shelter or material to repair their homes. Given the length, scale and diversity of this deployment, the Chairman of Disaster Aid International, David Langworthy, visited the affected areas for a week in January to review the impact of the operations. He also revisited Bohol for an assessment of that work that had been done there following the earthquake in October 2013. He received a very warm and emotional reception from individuals and community leaders alike. He was delighted to see what a real difference Disaster Aid International was able to make in helping these resilient communities re-establish themselves.
A short video was made of the deployment and highlights of this video can be see here:
