SUBJECT: CANADIAN TYPHOON ASSISTANCE TO THE PHILIPPINES

(U) On November 1, Foreign Minister MacKay and International
Cooperation Minister Verner expressed Canada’s condolences to
the families and communities in the central and northern
Philippines affected by Typhoon Durian. Minister Verner
announced that Canada is immediately allocating C$1 million
to support the efforts of Philippine and international
agencies providing emergency assistance to the affected
areas, and to assist with early recovery and disaster
preparedness initiatives. The Canadian aid includes
C$500,000 to the International Federation of the Red Cross to
assist with emergency and temporary shelter, non-food items,
water, and sanitation. Another C$500,000 will be allocated
to the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives to support local
organizations in facilitating the recovery of affected
households and addressing future disaster preparedness needs.
The GoC provided C$550,000 earlier in November to assist
with relief and recovery efforts after Typhoon Xangsane and
C$300,000 in February 2006 after mudslides in southern Leyte.
