Distribution of Preserved Alpha Rice to the Disaster Affected People of Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines

The Philippines was seriously hit by the super typhoon Yolanda on Nov.8th 2013

Upon receiving preserved alpha rice from AMDA's donor in Japan right after the disaster, we shipped them to the Philippines. Preserved alpha rice is packed in pouch and very useful for disaster cases even without gas or electricity since it can be cooked with hot water or water.

In response to the local needs, the Leyte Provincial Board Member and Leyte Medical Association conducted relief missions in March. During their missions, they, in support with AMDA, distributed 750 preserved rice packs to the disaster affected people in Leyte.

During the first mission, 350 preserved rice packs were distributed to school teachers, local people and provincial officers who are affected severely in 3 different locations in Tacloban city, Leyte. In the second mission, 400 preserved rice packs were given to local people in 2 locations in Tacloban city, Leyte during the medical mission conducted by Leyte Medical Society supported by AMDA.

When they received preserved rice, they were happy and expressed their appreciation by saying "These are very useful because we can keep it for emergency cases. Please say thank you to the Japanese donors." The other said, "It was very tasty and really easy to cook. Thank you."
