The Philippines

We’ve been working in the Philippines since 1981, running education, health, nutrition and protection programmes.

The Taal volcano eruption in 2020 left thousands of children homeless, With half a million people forced from their homes, many were moved to evacuation centres – putting children in danger of abuse and exploitation.

We reached children in the most affected areas, giving families essential household and hygiene items to help them survive. We also set up safe spaces for children to learn and play while receiving emotional support.

When Typhoon Haiyan caused devastation in 2013, we launched a major emergency response. Now, we're helping communities rebuild and protect themselves against future disasters.

Our programmes aim to help families escape poverty and access the food and healthcare they need to stay healthy. We're also working to ensure children have access to education from their early years onwards.
