CALL FOR ENTRIES: #RememberYolanda Poster-Making Competition

November 5, 2015

It’s been two years after Supertyphoon Yolanda hit the Philippines. But for many families, the storm is yet to pass. Thousands of families still live in transitional shelters without basic utilities and far from their children’s schools and sources of income. Others still live in danger zones.

Adequate housing is a basic human right. Disaster survivors deserve the full support of everyone in rebuilding their homes, in rebuilding their lives.

The Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development (PLCPD), together with ICCO Cooperation, invites everyone to participate in this poster-making competition as we commemorate the second anniversary of Yolanda and call for a more coherent policy and committed leadership on post-disaster housing and disaster risk reduction and management.

Remember Yolanda. Build resilient communities.
