An equal or perhaps even greater challenge, however, will be helping families rebuild their lives as the recovery process begins in earnest this week and in the coming weeks.
Nearly a million people are returning to their homes, uncertain of what they will find.
Many families had their homes damaged and livelihood activities severely disrupted and need to get back to earning income as quickly as possible.
In addition, families who were in the process of harvesting crops may have lost a portion or all of their harvest because of the disaster.
Families who were beginning to plant crops need to repair their fields and get back to planting their next harvest.
HOPE International Development Agency is helping storm-affected families get back on their feet and we need your help – because recovery, for families who endured the storm, begins with your donation.
