Overtime, many of protractedly internally displaced persons (IDPs) in host-communities are living uncomfortably due to small spaces, some with less privacy and dilapidated shelters, and toilets outside their houses have no lighting especially at night.
Since November 2020, we have managed to provide basic shelter kits, sleeping and kitchen kits, and solar lamps to 600 hundred households in the municipalities of Madamba, Kapai, Balindong, Saguiaran in Lanao Del Sur, and Pantao Ragaat, Lanao Del Norte. The distributions were held in coordination with the local government for the deliveries and co-facilitating the activities.
Beneficiaries have since been able to repair their homes using the materials from the shelter kits.

The REACH project is funded by the EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid – ECHO and is implemented together with CARE Philippines, Oxfam Pilipinas, and their local partners.
