Peace processes increasingly go beyond outlining cease-fires and dividing territory to incorporate elements that lay the foundations for peace and shape the structures of society. Yet by and large the participants who decide the former continue to decide the latter; the inclusion of others—those who did not take up arms, those who were working for peace, or significant portions of the population whose priorities for a peaceful society may differ— has not kept pace.
A SNAPSHOT OF EVENTS IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC
Between May and September 2011, a number of disasters including floods and storms continued to devastate Asia and the Pacific region.
Floods occurred in China from June onwards, affecting over 36 million people and killing at least 355 people. Despite direct economic losses of nearly US$6.5 billion, no international assistance was requested.
PHILIPPINES: TYPHOON RESPONSE
UMCOR's Philippine office which opened at the end of July is already in full swing providing assistance after two typhoons struck Zambales, a province in the Central Luzon region of the country. UMCOR staff members are assessing the situation with local partners including Kapaatiran-Kaunlaran Foundation Inc. (KKFI), formerly the Methodist Social Center, an organization the works with the poor.
CRWRC in the Philippines
On September 28, 2006, the Luzon district of the Philippines was struck by typhoon Mileyno. The high winds and unusually heavy rains devastated this poor area of the Philippines. Poor farmers lost their crops, fishermen and farm labourers lost their jobs.
CRWRC provided immediate aid to those in need with immediate food and water and temporary shelter.
