Temporary Program Suspension

HEALTH AND SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT – COVID 19

We have suspended operations for at least two months at locations around the world in response to the global threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This proactive measure is intended to minimize the risk COVID-19 poses to the communities we serve, our volunteers and staff; the health and safety of our All Hands and Hearts’ community is our foremost priority. We remain committed to finishing the work we began, once the global situation stabilizes. 

PHILIPPINES TYPHOON RELIEF

Disaster Profile: Philippines Typhoon Mangkhut

Typhoon Mangkhut (known locally as Ompong) was a powerful super typhoon that brought widespread damage to Guam, the Philippines and South China in September 2018. Mangkhut made landfall in the Philippine province of Cagayan, late on September 14th, as a Category 5-equivalent typhoon. With sustained wind speeds of more than 205 km/h, the typhoon was the strongest storm to hit the Philippines since Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) in 2013.

In October 2016, two years before Mangknut struck the Philippines, Typhoon Haima (known locally as Lawin) made landfall in Cagayan as a Category 5-equivalent storm. The super typhoon had a diameter of 800km and devastated the area. We have identified schools within the Cagayan province which sustained destructive impacts from both Mangkhut and Haima, and have yet to receive help.

Program Work: Temporary Suspension 

Our Philippines Typhoon Relief program is currently on hold. We have suspended all operations, in response to the global COVID-19 situation, to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the communities we serve. 

On January 20, 2020, we opened our Philippines Typhoon Relief program, focusing on two primary schools, which accommodate more than 500 students aged 6-12 years old. The schools are located in the municipalities of Amulung and Alcala, in the northern Cagayan province of the Philippines. When operations re-commence, we will continue work rebuilding five classrooms, two canteens and individual toilets for the classrooms, as well as refurbishing the fifteen standing classrooms, offices and gymnasiums.

Our team has begun work on both Agani and Dadda Elementary Schools and will return as soon as it is safe to do so, to continue rebuilding safe and disaster-resilient schools.

Children may be placed in Temporary Learning Centers (TLCs) for years after a disaster, if their school was completely destroyed. Our school build programs aim to provide a safe and disaster-resilient learning environment for students.

Base Work Base Work

Our bases are communal living spaces that we strive to make feel like home for each and every volunteer. Base work allows us to achieve this and also gives us the opportunity to leverage volunteer skills off the worksite, should they be willing and able to help with office work.
