Carmensita is grateful for the generosity of the Canadian people and supporters of ADRA that have helped her build a new home. Every time she sees ADRA staff she is full of joy and smiles.
“Thank you” she says, “I now have a house!”
With about 70% of the villagers making a living in the fishing industry, ADRA is also helping people rebuild their boats. With new nets from ADRA, to replace those lost in the storm, fishermen are now able return to their livelihoods, so they can provide for their families.
By time this program is over, ADRA Canada will have rebuilt 500 fishing boats and helped over 27,000 people build new homes or repair their existing ones.
Thanks to your support, the response to Typhoon Haiyan has been a big success!
