Immediate relief

Overview

Sagip Kapamilya is a program created in 2004 to provide relief assistance to disaster-affected communities due to the numerous calamities that hit the Philippines.

The immediate deployment of relief operations is one of the program’s key components to help address the communities’ basic needs that became inaccessible due to the disaster.

Challenge

The Philippines is one of the top five most disaster-prone countries in the world. Due to its geographical location along the boundary of major tectonic plates and the center of a typhoon belt, the country is largely hit by floods, typhoons, landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and droughts. In the past two years alone, around 3 million Filipinos were affected by disasters. When disasters strike, it is important to reach vulnerable communities in a timely manner and provide them with access to basic needs.

Solution

Sagip Kapamilya, with its network of partners and volunteers, helps distribute food packs to families, especially in hard-to-reach areas.

Impact of your donation

Your contribution will directly support the distribution of food packs and hygiene kits which will ensure that vulnerable families receive critical assistance during their most challenging times.

Help us reach more families today!

Rehabilitation efforts

Overview

To augment the relief operations, Sagip Kapamilya also provides rehabilitation assistance to families and communities that are heavily affected by disasters. Part of these rehabilitation efforts include rebuilding community infrastructure such as shelters, schools and water facilities – all to help rekindle the hope of the Filipino people.

Challenge

Apart from ranking as one of the top 5 most disaster-prone countries, the PH is also among the top 3 countries in the world with the population being exposed and vulnerable to hazards.

With Tyhpoon Paeng in 2022, more than 600 classrooms were damaged. In the same year, around 20 schools in affected regions also sustained damages from Typhoon Karding with more than 12 million learners affected. While in 2021, around 1.5 million houses were destroyed by Typhoon Odette.

These staggering numbers highlight the urgency to go beyond immediate relief assistance and provide rehabilitation to guide Filipino families back to normalcy as soon as possible.

Solution

Sagip Kapamilya is committed to impactful rehabilitation projects aimed at rebuilding critical infrastructure, including homes and schools, while also ensuring access to clean drinking water in underserved and disaster-affected communities. Part of the comprehensive rehabilitation initiatives, Sagip Kapamilya also championed the Legacy Project, construction of robust two-story, eight-classroom buildings, designed not only to facilitate education but also to serve as a resilient evacuation center during times of disasters. This Legacy Project encapsulates ABS-CBN Foundation’s enduring dedication to creating lasting positive change in the lives of those we serve.

Impact of your donation

Your donation becomes the driving force for the reconstruction of critical infrastructure in communities that are heavily affected by disasters. Through Sagip Kapamilya, you can help ensure that families regain their homes.

Together, we’re not just rebuilding structures – we’re rebuilding lives, dreams and their future. Be part of our impact of today!

Disaster Preparedness

 

Overview

Disaster Preparedness Training is SK’s next step in its comprehensive disaster risk reduction approach. Beyond humanitarian aid and rehabilitation – which has been delivered for decades, the program also recognizes the essential role of disaster preparedness in safeguarding lives and minimizing the impact of disasters.

Challenge

Natural disasters are very common in the Philippines and their catastrophic effects are felt by millions of Filipinos every year. While there have been many disaster resilient programs implemented in different areas in the country, there is still much to be accomplished, especially for communities in far-flung areas.

Solution

Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all approach in disaster risk management, SK aims to work with a network of experts and other organizations to implement a comprehensive and area-specific disaster preparedness training.

Impact of your donation

Your contribution will help build disaster-resilient communities and bring sustainable impact by empowering them through strengthening their disaster preparedness knowledge and skills. By donating, you can become a catalyst for resilience, helping us secure a better and more resilient future for Filipino families.
