GIVE2ASIA DISASTER PROGRAMS

At Give2Asia we believe that natural hazards do not have to lead to disasters. As a warming planet continues to create climate events that are increasing in frequency and intensity, communities throughout Asia and the Pacific must be better prepared to face the onslaught of catastrophes with resilience.

Our Disaster fund is currently supporting local recovery efforts from the February earthquake in Taiwan, 2017 floods in South Asia, and others, through vetted organizations that have demonstrated long-term impact models. 

Give2Asia has been supporting the Guiuan Development Fund Inc. (GDFI) in the Philippines towards rebuilding the lives and livelihoods of communities in the Eastern Samar province since Typhoon Yolanda hit in 2013. Watch our video to learn more about the work that GDFI has been doing around disaster readiness and environmental management.

Disaster Preparedness Program

 

Give2Asia has partnered with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction to increase the capacity of local community-based organizations across Asia to prepare for disasters and build sustainable programming to address long-term climate challenges. Through this NGO Disaster Preparedness Project we work with countries that are highly vulnerable to disasters to fund innovative programming at the community level, and develop resources for donors and international organizations to better understand the disaster landscape in Asia. While we are continually expanding our geographic reach, below is a snapshot of countries that we work with and a profile of their disaster landscape. Donations to this fund go directly to programs in our preparedness network that are most impacted by disasters.

Myanmar

India

Philippines

Indonesia

Vietnam

A key part of our work with the preparedness program includes generating resources that synthesize the work we're doing. These resources can be used by donors, researchers, advocates, fiscal sponsorship partners, development organizations, and anyone with an interest in learning more about disasters. These full-length PDFs are freely available in the hopes of spreading knowledge of best practices far and wide.
