After Aloma’s home was destroyed by a destructive typhoon, she was determined to help her family and community rebuild from the disaster.
Aloma joined a program supported by Caritas Australia and its local partner organisation, Socio Pastoral Action Center Foundation Inc. (SPACFI). Through this program, she gained a range of skills, including bookkeeping, logistics management, first aid training and disaster risk reduction knowledge.
Today, Aloma is a leader in her community, using her new skills to help her community better withstand recurring extreme weather events.
Your donation today can help to change the lives of women in the most marginalised communities in the world.
