"It is time for us to go to the people rather than ask the people, especially the poor, to come to us."
With the effects of climate change pulling the country to the forefront of disasters, TAO-Pilipinas has evolved its range of post-disaster response in partnership with humanitarian and other donor agencies. Since 2006, TAO has partnered with humanitarian actors to deliver timely and effective shelter assistance in post-disaster situations. We provide technical support in the conduct of post-disaster damage assessment and reconstruction efforts, employing the principles of people-centered response and disaster resilience.
