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.
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.
To help spread knowledge of the ways that we can truly have an impact in reducing disaster risks sustainably, Give2Asia devoted an entire month of programming to stories and lessons on disaster resilience. Start here to learn more!

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.
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. Further resources we have produced include a toolkit for inclusion in disaster programming, a resource for community-based organizations!
