The relief and development arm of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches is PHILRADS, established in 1980 to serve the poor and needy of the Philippines through PCEC’s network of local churches. PHILRADS (Philippine Relief and Development Services), the holistic ministry arm, responds to the emergency needs of disaster victims, provides assistance for their rehabilitation, implements sustainable community development projects (including long term poverty alleviation projects in depressed or disaster-stricken communities), and conducts disaster management seminars for local churches and communities.
The Philippines is known as one of the most hazard-prone countries in the world. In a study conducted by World Bank in 2008, the country was identified as a natural disaster hot-spot with approximately 50.3 percent of its total area and 81.3 percent of its population vulnerable to natural disasters. Based on the 2012 World Risk Report published by the United Nations University Institute of Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), the Philippines is the third most disaster risk country worldwide. The most disastrous year was observed in 2011 with 33 disaster events mostly attributed to tropical storms and floods.
