Typhoon Sendong GK Operation Walang Iwanan Activated!
[Date Created: January 20, 2012]

Recognizing that the impact of disaster is beyond the physical, the relief operations of Gawad Kalinga has been holistic in approach. In line with this, three modes of interventions have been employed: 

1.Delivery of relief goods to remote areas. 

2.Establishment of child care centers in selected evacuation centers where feeding and play therapy are being conducted

3.Establishment of soup kitchens in selected areas. 

Thus far, over 11,000 food packs have been distributed to disaster-affected areas. Moreover, Paraisong Pambata (3C) is being held weekly at different locations, catering to 4,000 kids and counting.

Moving on to the next and urgent stage of reconstruction. 

We would like to honor all our partners who have contributed generously, and our volunteers who continue to share their time throughout this holiday season to bring hope to the victims.  There is still so much more to be done, and we appeal to everyone to be our brothers keepers.

Thank you for this act of solidarity.  

In behalf of Team GK,

Luis Oquinena

Tropical storm Sendong took the City of Iligan, among other cities and provinces in Northern Mindanao, Visayas and Palawan; like a thief on the night of December 16, 2011. This was clearly a disaster that took many lives but more than that, this has become another opportunity to once again testify to the Filipino spirit of Walang Iwanan. 

Barely two days after the devastation of Sendong (international name: Washi), Gawad Kalinga’s Operation Walang Iwanan was activated to help in the affected areas of Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and Dumaguete. Team GK was one of the first groups to mobilize and distribute much-needed supplies and food packs to the various disaster areas and bring medical attention to those in need. 
We appeal to everyone to help by donating in cash or in kind, or joining our relief operations as a volunteer.  Every small bit counts, and if we all do it together, we can make this a meaningful Christmas not just for the families who have lost everything, but for ourselves as well.
