Plan Canada - Emergencies

  1. 1. Emergencies<br />See Plan’s projects in action<br />Quick response: Just days after the Haiti earthquake, Plan volunteers unloaded 4,000 tents that were distributed to families. <br />
  2. 2. Home away from home: Temporary shelter, like this tent in a Plan-supported relief camp in Pakistan, is a crucial part of Plan’s emergency response.<br />
  3. 3. Tools for survival: Digging tools arrive in Haiti in a Plan aid shipment, also containing tents and survival kits.<br />
  4. 4. Ensuring identity: Documents like birth certificates, ID cards, and passports often go missing in emergencies, so Plan helps individuals access services and regain their proof of identity.<br />
  5. 5. Quick fix: Temporary structures, like this one in Jacmel, Haiti, can be constructed quickly to serve as schools and health clinics in disaster situations.<br />
  6. 6. Water supply: This water pump was repaired by Plan after it was broken and contaminated by flooding in Pakistan.<br />
  7. 7. A priority for children: Children in the Philippines received new school supplies after their school was destroyed in Typhoon Ketsana. <br />
  8. 8. Win-win situation: Through Cash-for-Work programs, Plan hires local residents to work on the ground in emergency situations, like this team clearing rubble in Haiti.<br />
  9. 9. Water works: Restoring access to clean water and sanitation is essential to preventing outbreaks of water-borne diseases, like cholera, in an emergency. <br />
  10. 10. Avoiding disaster: Marie Josee displays her certificate of participation in a Plan Disaster Risk Reduction workshop, which has helped her raise awareness about disaster preparation in her community.<br />
  11. 11. All the basics: This family kit is one example of the supplies that Plan provides in the event of an emergency.<br />
  12. 12. Throne room: Haiti's recent cholera outbreak shows how important sanitation facilities, like these toilet blocks built by Plan, are in emergency response efforts.<br />
  13. 13. Food aid: When disaster strikes, whether it is flood or famine, food distribution is an important aspect of Plan's work.<br />
  14. 14. School must go on: Children attend school in a transitional structure built to ensure that their studies aren’t disrupted. <br />
