MISSION CAPSULES: Hanie Ablona looks at her freshly harvested rice stalks with happiness - her rice and corn crops have almost doubled in size this year. Providing a much needed source of food and income, the seed for her crops was provided through a PWS&D project helping recover livelihoods in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Many farmers lost all of their planted crops and available seed but are now starting to recover, thanks to the project. Communities like Hanie's are also receiving assistance in reconstructing homes and ensuring that they will be resistant to future natural disasters. Communities are starting to see great progress and PWS&D continues to support long-term rehabilitation and recovery in response to the typhoon.
