NEWS | 11/01/2020Anakk, the Foundation's collaborator in the country, helps more than 300 young people affected by the earthquakes in Davao del Sur.
Post-traumatic stress has been heightened by the consistent aftershocks and recovery efforts have been slowed amid fears there could yet be more earthquakes. Classes have been stopped as a result of damage to the infrastructures including schools and roads. The psycho-social initiatives carried out by Annak both for the beneficiaries of the schools and other young people in the area have been crucial, and spaces have been set up to assist evacuated families. Given the holiday season, Christmas has also been celebrated with the distribution of gifts.
