Since its creation in 1984, CDRC has supported over 3 million Filipinos through its programs. It assists the vulnerable sectors to comprehensively respond to disaster situations and also addresses the root causes of their vulnerabilities. CDRC offers itself to the most needy, deprived, and poorest segments of Philippine society whose socio-economic conditions make them highly vulnerable to hazards and disasters, giving special attention to children, women, the frail elderly, and the differently-abled sectors.
Recently, we launched the CDRC Library. It supports CDRC’S broader mission by developing a live and growing collection of information resources which are carefully selected based on the needs of the organization and the community it serves.
We need books… and we need you to help us.
Currently, CDRC library only has 850 titles, half of which are already outdated. We are still in dire need of recently published books, journals and other information resources on the following areas:
Community development
Disaster management
Emergency response
Environment & Climate change
Hazards/Disasters  (including volcanic eruption, typhoons, epidemic, fishkill,     drought, flood, earthquake, landslides, redtide, fire,      development aggression, trashslide and armed conflict)
Health and sanitation
Sustainable Agriculture
Women and children
Our goal is to augment our library collection to better serve the users of the library. We need your help to achieve this.
If you have books or other materials in any format that fall within the categories above, please donate a copy. Please also consider making a financial donation to cover the costs of shipping the books you donate.
Help us fill the shelves at Citizens’ Disaster Response Center Library.
