Supporting Self-Recovery in practice
This programme supported the ‘self-recovery’ of lives and homes after the typhoon hit, by providing guidance, equipment, cash grants and technical assistance.

Through training on how to make their houses safer, local people have become more resilient to natural disasters. Read more.
