Help Them Get Back Up On Their Feet
Natural Disaster Survivors
All too often we see families who suffer through natural disasters and personal tragedies quickly forgotten after receiving initial relief assistance. iPrevail seeks to go beyond first response, providing means to rebuild homes and recreate livelihoods in order to empower our beneficiaries to prevail through catastrophe and transcend to a new beginning.
iPrevail International Foundation's roots come from disaster recovery. we have been helping families overcome disaster and personal struggle. We started the foundation by helping families who survived typhoon Haiyan recover their livelihoods and re-establish self sufficiency. iPrevail has helped others prevail by providing materials to rebuild homes allowing families to move on in their recovery efforts. We have provided communities with financial resources, job placement, and other means to allow others to provide income and necessities for themselves and their loved ones. iPrevail International’s impact is not only felt through writing and photography as our staff and directors step outside of the office and become involved first hand in the rebuilding mission in areas struck by natural disasters. We will continue to impact communities in which we are involved by providing rescue, rehabilitation, recovery, and rebuilding services along with job placement and business building knowledge to truly allow victims of tragedy and disaster prevail.
The Story of Danilo
Prevailing Through The Storm
We live a very simple life. Me and my family are happily living in our own house.
When typhoon Yolanda hit our place, we lost everything. Our house was destroyed. I thought that it is strong enough to keep us safe since it is made of concrete but I was wrong.
As the water rose I knew that all of us will be carried away by the flood..I wrapped my wife and my children with the table cloth I saw floating and put ply wood that fell from our ceiling in front of them. I embraced my whole family together with the table cloth and the plywood. I can feel the pain every time something hit my body but I have to keep embracing them to protect them. As I recall the strong winds lasted for about 2 hours and I embraced my whole family the whole time.. I thought I was having a bad dream. I tap my head several times and say to myself wake up this is not real… this is not real.
