ADRA’s shelter recovery projects help families bounce back as they learn how to properly make house repairs or build new homes with build back better (3bs) techniques ensuring safety and greater durability. In effect, we help rebuild homes and the lives in it.
In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, ADRA Philippines implemented shelter recovery projects in four key provinces namely Leyte, Aklan, Iloilo and Capiz. These initiatives involved the construction or repair of more than 6,200 houses, providing house-building materials, tools and carpentry trainings to families. ADRA plays a key role in supporting shelter recovery among the poor in these affected areas by not only distributing construction materials and tools but also delivering hands-on technical assistance on safer building practice and disaster risk-reduction. The organization has partnered with the Technical Education and Skills Development (TESDA) in training carpenters in safer building practices.
