CRASH PLANS RESPONSE TO TYPHOON HAIYAN WITH CHILD TRAUMA CAMPS

Considered as the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines in many years, Super Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) made six landfalls on 7th of November causing widespread devastation. CRASH Japan is partnering with the Philippine Christian Ministries Network, a commission of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches, to hold OperationSAFE child trauma camps in the affected region. These camps will be held once basic needs of food, shelter, medicine and security are met and will help children to process the terrible events they have been through, meet new friends and move toward recovery. 

HOW BAD IS IT REALLY?

  • 13.2 Million People Affected
  • 9 Regions, 44 Provinces, 57 Cities, 574 Municipalities
  • 5.6 Million People Displaced
  • 4,011 Casualties, 18,557 Injuries, 1,602 Missing
  • 846,747 Damaged Homes

THE PHILIPPINE CHILDREN’S MINISTRY NETWORK

Just two days before Typhoon Haiyan struck, we held OperationSAFE child trauma camp training in Manila with the national network of children’s ministries. Over four days we taught them the five themes of children’s trauma recovery and the songs, games, crafts and stories that make it both fun and healing. We also instructed them in emotional and spiritual care for disaster survivors and for those who minister to them. It was a timely seminar and many of these workers are now responding to the immediate needs and preparing for OperationSAFE camps to come.

November 15

This afternoon about 20 people came to establish the Philippine Evangelical Disaster Network, we had a workshop to identify the strength, geographical locations, and resources of each organization in the body. The guiding principle is that, we will work with the local church, we will have open communications for central databasing. Meeting was with top officers of organizations responding to Yolanda crisis, and facilitated by Bishop Efraim Tendero. Philippine Children’s Ministries Network (PCMN) is committed to vigorously work alongside the churches in Samar, responding to needs especially to families and children in extreme situation after a disaster.
