Typhoon reconstruction

When a power­ful typhoon — Haiy­an — rav­aged the Phil­ip­pines in 2013, the In­ter­na­tion­al Res­cue Com­mit­tee helped loc­al com­munit­ies re­build and pre­pare for the next dis­aster. After Typhoon Hag­upit struck the is­lands last fall the emer­gency pre­pared­ness paid off: IRC-sup­por­ted aid groups were able to provide im­me­di­ate as­sist­ance and save lives. The IRC will en­sure that donated WakaWa­kas get to the sur­viv­ors who are re­start­ing and re­build­ing their lives after the cata­stroph­ic de­struc­tion wrought by Haiy­an and Hag­upit.
