In response to conditions following Typhoon Haiyan, Lutheran World Relief (LWR) raised $9.7 million to meet the immediate relief and long-term recovery needs of affected populations. LWR is implementing a 2.5 year program that will support more than 160,000 of the most vulnerable people affected by the typhoon. To date, LWR has reached nearly 149,000 people, or 69 percent of people targeted by LWR’s response.
During the past 12 months, LWR has been implementing projects in six sectors: shelter, cash transfers through cash-for-work (CFW), non-food items (NFIs) and material resources (MR), quality & accountability (Q&A), early recovery and livelihood rehabilitation, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). These project areas were informed by needs assessments, coordination with other humanitarian actors and input from local partners, local government officials and affected populations.Download PDF (2 MB)
