Emergency Response

Fight against COVID-19 for the children of the IDP Camps Paletwa

The overall project objective is to provide humanitarian assistance to internally displaced people (IDPs) in Myanmar. Therefore, it is essential to ensure the survival of IDPs and their children in the camps in Paletwa, Chin State, and to restore their human dignity through the construction of latrines, the provision of clean water and the implementation of WASH activities as the main measure against the spread of the COVID-19 virus for children and their parents.

Humanitarian Aid: distribution of blankets to cold wave affected people

Generally, in Bangladesh during the winter season the temperature remains between 10 to 15 degrees Celsius. In the year 2010, the temperature came down to 4 degrees Celsius and placed the survival of the homeless and the poor in a precarious state, resulting in the deaths of several individuals. In response to this situation HOPE’87 distributed 500 blankets to the most affected people in four districts.

HOPE'87 Co-action programme

The Co-action programme provided essential non-bureaucratic and rapid support for people suffering from different problems. Priority was given to women, physically challenged persons, refugees, orphans and underprivileged individuals. The projects undertaken were usually on a small-scale initiative and included essential assistance in medical treatment, access to education and setting up small enterprises. During the reporting period, help for 20 individuals of this kind was provided.

Humanitarian Aid: Distribution of emergency rescue kits

Lack of knowledge and insufficient disaster preparedness often hinder immediate rescue and support missions after a severe event. In order to increase people's chances of survival and decrease their vulnerability in case of an emergency, HOPE'87 procured special rescue kit boxes to be distributed in risk areas. These boxes consist of fire proof jackets, blankets, helmets, stretchers, hammers, knifes, saws, axes, wrenches, jags, portable oxygen bars, torches, pliers, pillows, rain coats, canvas, rope and other tools and materials.

Distribution of water purification tablets

With generous support of "Apotheker helfen e.V.", HOPE'87 distributed 1,000,000 Water Purification Tablets that were needed in disaster areas. 10,000 families benefited from this relief activity.

Emergency Aid Haiyan - Philippines

In response to the disastrous situation after typhoon Haiyan struck the central parts of the Philippines in early November 2013, emergency assistance activities were implemented over a period of three months, targeting families severely hit by the typhoon. The Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco, an international organisation that has been supporting the Philippines since 1955, acted as the local implementing partner of HOPE’87. As an organisation they provide schooling and work to support and protect females at their venues throughout the Philippines.
