Bantayan Island and other areas in Northern Cebu were directly impacted by Typhoon Yolanda. In partnership with grassroots organizations in Cebu City and Bantayan Island, our relief work will address the immediate needs of communities, with an emphasis on Northern Cebu and Bantayan Island. Cash donations will go towards the purchase of priority items like tents, food, water, medicine, etc. We are also committed to a longer-term vision of regeneration and resilience strategies once the relief work has subsided--planting new crops, rebuilding water systems, new ways to deal with waste management, etc. -- all with an eye on local capacity-building and organizing for sustainable community development.
