About Philippines Country Program
Relief International has been active in the Philippines since 1990, delivering a wide spectrum of humanitarian assistance and development programs spanning the provision of health services, promotion of biodiversity and conservation, improving water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services, responding to natural disasters through food and non-food item distributions, disaster risk reduction and preparedness and peacebuilding. To carry out its mandate, RI in the Philippines partners with communities affected by conflict, climate change, and disaster in order to save lives, build greater resilience, protect vulnerable groups, and promote long-term health and well-being. Our partnerships to build greater resilience amongst communities span across crisis, response, protection, and resilience. Currently, we work in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao regions with offices in Luzon (Makati HQ) and Mindanao.
