This process is based on Tearfund’s experience in the Philippines, in response to Typhoon Haiyan (2013). Typhoon Haiyan (locally named Yolanda) hit the Philippines on 8 November, 2013. Humanitarian assistance focused on some of the hardest hit areas in the Eastern Visayas region – Tacloban, Leyte and the nearby province of Samar. The typhoon also moved towards Central and Western Visayas. The majority of affected areas experienced storm surges, coastal flooding and strong winds. This included Cadiz City in the province of Negros Occidental.

Their experience in Cadiz City may be different from your area and would encourage you to adapt this process to suit your needs.
