CRS provides families with an emergency shelter kit. During recovery we will support access to permanent housing solutions. Catholic Charities accepts donations for CRS/Philippines and will pass 100% of those donations to CRS. CRS’ programming in the Philippines is among the agency’s oldest – we’ve been on the ground in the Philippines since the end of WW11. And as is our experiences following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2010 Haitian earthquake, CRS is committing to long-term rebuilding. After other agencies have moved on, CRS will still be among the affected communities, working to re-establish livelihoods.
