To date, PADF has delivered hygiene kitsemergency food kits, bottled water and water purification tablets to more than 23,000 people.

PADF and partners will continue to provide urgently needed supplies to people affected by the storm. In the coming weeks, our priorities will be to:

  • Organize debris removal to restore road access and inject cash into communities

  • Distribute tools (picks, shovels, axes, wheelbarrows) to allow communities to begin clean-up

  • Provide roof kits (wood beams, tin sheets and toolkits) for home repair

  • Provide technical assistance and coordinate roof and home repairs for households and shelters

PADF is also assessing damage to shelters and homes in order to provide repairs including repairing or replacing roofing, leaks, cracks or drainage issues.
