PIN celebrates 5 years in the Philippines!

Czech NGO People in Need (Člověk v tísni) celebrated its 5th anniversary of working in the Philippines which started in 2013 after the devastating typhoon Yolanda in Eastern Visayas.

People in Need (Člověk v tísni) is the biggest and the most important NGO in Central and Eastern Europe. Active in 40+ countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe with focused efforts in humanitarian and development programs, this Czech NGO was created by a small group of enthusiasts shortly after the Velvet Revolution, which toppled the communist regime in then Czechoslovakia. It started its operations in the Philippines to help the people affected by super typhoon Yolanda in 2013 and then expanded its operations in a variety of sectors such as sustainable livelihoods, market inclusion, disaster resilience, land rights, peacebuilding, and youth employment. With offices in Guiuan (Samar) and Metro Manila, it supports dozens of projects mainly in the Eastern Visayas and newly also in Mindanao.

The celebration provided an opportunity to review the work of PIN in the Philippines in the past 5 years and also to highlight the projects of PIN focused on development aid, humanitarian assistance and promotion of human rights all around the world.

The event was attended by the representatives of diplomatic missions in Manila, international and local NGOs, government representatives and inter-governmental agencies.
